There waa a re-union of the- Society of the Army of the Potomac, held at CiueinnattK on the 7th iost. At this celebration au oration was delivered by Gen. Stewart L, Woodford, of New York- and from this oration we make the following extracts : The morning crept slowly on first into gray dawn then into rosy flash. Still on ! still on ; The mists crept up ward aitd iuto !h.e yot wheeled, and n your muskets lay down, each mau iu place, to got scant rest, which, even in terrible marching you neither sought nor heeded. You were across Lee's front and had closed forever his last re treat. The enemy reaching your cavalry advance, saw tli3 serried litie of Union troopers. Gordon gathered and mas sed h's men for their last charge. Tat tered and hunsrv. worn by eeasless marching and fighting with uo hope of victory, with little possibility of es cape, they closed their lines with a fidelity of discipline and a soldierly lesolutiou to which words can do little justice but which each soldier's heart tnust recognize and honor. As the old guard closed around their Emperor at Waterloo, so these men closed around the flags of their lost cause. Mv heart abherj their treasou, but it raris without rtraiat to their manhood sa grandly brave even in disloyalty. Slowly they advan ced to their last attack. No battle yell, no crack of the skirmishers rifle broke the strange stillness of that Sab bath mora. Steadily, silently they came, wheu Sheridau drew back his horsemen, as parts some mighty cur tain, aud there stood the close tormea battalions of infantry, tho cannor, gleaming in the openings, quietly a- waitiug the coining of Gordon's men. Instinctively your enemy halted. Meanwhile Lee has turned baeK to meet Grant aud surrender his com uiaud. Sheridau swung around upon Gordon's left and was about to charge when Custar reached LoDgstreet. Assurance of surrender was given, aud the end had come That sabbath day with tears of sor row, southei-L men folded the banuers tions waicri impelled, a id the purpose which guiJed iti course a platform which, casting behind it the wreck and rubbish of woru out, eonteutious and by-gone feuds, embod es in fit and few words the need- aud aspirations of today Though thousands stand ready to condiMtin your every act, hardly a syllable of criticism or cavil has been aimed at your platform, of which the substances may be fairly epitomized as follows: "1.

Mr. Greeley's reply accepting the nomination, dated Now York, May, 20, is as follows "Gentlemen : I have chosen not to acknowledge your letter ot the 3rd instaut until I could learn how the work of your convention was received in all parts of our great country, and! judge whether that-worU was approveu and raiiaed by trie mass ot our teuow citizens. Their response has from day to day reached me through teiegrams letters and comments of journalists in dependent of official patronage, and indifferent to the smiles or frowns of power. "The number and character of these unconstrained, unpurchased, unsolic ited utterances satisfy me- that the movement which found expression at Cinciunatti has received the stamp of public approval and has been hailed by the majority of our countrymen as the harbinger of better days for the republic. I do not misinterpret this approval,, as especially complimentary to myself nor eveii to the chivalrous and justly esteemed geutleman with whose name I thank your convention for associating mine. l-I receive aud welcome it as a spon taneous and deserved tribute to that admirable platform of principles where in your convention so tersely, so lucidly and so forcibly act forth the con vie- il authority should be sut reme oyer the military ; that the writ of habeas corpus should be jealously upheld as the safeguard of perso'ual freedom ; that the individual citizen should eu joy the largest liberty consistent with public order, and that there shall be no federal subversion of the internal pcllcy of'the several states nd m'iuio ipalities, but that each shall be left free to enforce the rights and promote tho well being of its inhabitants by such means as the judgment of its own people shall prescribe, "4. There shall be a real and not merely simulated reform in the civil service of the republic, to which end it is indispensable, the chief dispenser of its vast official patronage shall be shielded from the main temptation to use his power selfishly, by a rule inex orably forbidding aud precluding re election. "5th. That the raising of revenue, whether by tariff or otherwise, shall be recognized and treated as the peo ple's immediate busine s, to be shaped and directed by them, througn their representatives, iu Congress, whose action thereon tho 1 resident must neither overrule by his veto, attempt to dictate, nor presume to punish by bestowing oxnee only oq those who agree withnim, or withdraw ing it from those who do not. 6. That the publio lands must be sacredly reserved for acquisition and occuDation bv cultivators, and not recklessly squandered ou the projectors of railroads, for which our people have no present need, and the premature construction of which is pnnually plunging us into deeper and abysses of foreign indebtedness' "7. That the achievement of those grand purposes of universal aeneficence is respected and sought at the hands of all who approve their, iirespective of past affiliations. 8. That the public faith must at all hazards be maintained, and the uational credit be preserved. 9. That the patriotic devotedness and inestimable services of our fellow citizens, who, as soldiers or sailors, upheld the flag and maintained the unity of the republic, shall ever be gratefully remembered and honorably requited. lhese propositions, so abiy and ior cibly presented in the platform of your convention, have already fixed the at. teution, aud commanded the assent of a large majority of our countrymen, who joyfully adopt them, as 1 do, as the basis of a true, beneficent, national reconstruction of a new departure lrom jealousies, strife- and bates which have uo longer an adequate motive, or eveu plausible pretext, into an atmosphere of peace, fraternity, and mutual good will. In vain do the drill sergeants oi decaying organizations flourish menac ingly tueir truncheons and angrily in sist that tho files shall be closed and straightened. "Iu vain do tho whippers in of par ties ouce vital, because rooted in the vital needs of the hour, protest against stravmsr and bolting, denounce men nowise their inferiors as traitors and renegades, and threaten them with in famy and ruin. I am confident that the American people have already made your cause their own, fully re solved that their brave hearts and strong arms shall bear it on to triumph In this faith, aud with the distinct understanding, that if elected, I ehall be the President, uot of a party, but of the whole people, I accept your ncm ination, ia the confident trust the masses of our countrymen, North and South, sire eager to clasp hands across the bloody chasm which has too long One Square, ' Two Square. !

As, however, Jadge Merriinou is a cudi Jato for the highest office iu the State, ho merits defence at the hands of his political friends. When the legislature met in Novem ber, 1803, Mr. George W. Swepsoa'u standing in the State as a business ttiaii and a capitalist was very high, and Judge Merrimon and T, as well as other eminent lawyers at llaleigh, did business for him exactly as we should have done it for ny other respectable geutlemen in the State. What he wished us to do was important to our section, and in it elf praiseworthy. Juuc Merrirnon and I had been resi dents of the western part of tho State, and in co Jiciou with our fellow-citizen.-. anxious to obtain railroad facilities, and the bills we prepared were proper in themselves to carry out measures of public importance. I am confident that Judge Merrirnon had no more ground than myself to suspect that the money to bo appropriated was to be misapplied. I never did anything as counsel or otherwise for Mr. Swep-1 son af'er he left the office of President of the road without settling fairly with the Company, and from all I ever knew I ..f T.. 3 At : T 1 .1. ui ijuugo xuernmou x nave not rue slightest reason to suspect that he countenanced Swepson's embezzlement of the funds ot the Company. The important fact, however, to which I wish to call the attention of every man in the State, is that Gov. lod K. Caldwell is responsible to a greater extent for the legislation that enabled J. W. Swepson to defraud the State, thau either Judge Merrirnon or myself. Gov. Caldwell cannot have forgotten what I aliudo to, and when he sees this letter, I trust ho will at once cause his central organ to rectify it3 mistakes and cease its at'.ack3. The Act of the Legislature ratified 29th day of January, A. D., 1809, was pro pared by Tod It. Caldwell, then Licut Govemor and President of the Senate, and carried through the Legislature mainly by his influence. This Act coutaius almost all the important leg islation of the session for the Western rt. (j. rioaa, and makes the large ap propriation of seven miliions of dollars for the construction of both divisions of the ltoad. The circumstances at tending its passage were these: Judge Merrirnon and I had prepared a bil which met with Gov. Caldwell's op' nositiou. His objection to it was that it allowed the private stockholders to elect all the directors of both divisions of tho road, because it provided thatin the election the State proxy should vote only one-third of her stock so as to allow the private stockholders the control. Gov. Caldwell objected to this, and said his party was entitled to have tho control of the corporations. After the struggle in the legislaturoliad continued some weeks, Mr Swepson told Judge Merrirnon and myself that as he could not get the bill through against Caldwell's influence, he bad agreed to make a compromise with him, and that Caldwell had himself prepared a b?ll which he was willing to except. Both . Merrirnon aud I objected to the com promise, though afterwards, on ficdiug that this bill afforded the only chance for any appropriation to tho road, 1 eventually withdrew my opposition, and the bill io that form, maiuly through Gov. Caldwell's influence, be cair-e a law. During the ion tost. I had a conversation with Gov. Caldwell my self, and to etated that he was quite wi!lixg that the Western Division should be arranged as Mr. Swepson desired it to be, but that he was not willing that tho Eastern Division should be in like condition because cf he h-tdjust .received from Mr. Swepson, theu in Florida, requesting o ue additional-Legislation. On his explaiiiins; to me whot Mr. Stepson wished t' hav-p done, I, in ac-oi dance with (joy. Caldwell's wishes, weut to the II n. S. F. Philips' office an 1 told him t'i.t. Mr. Swepson desired him to prepare a bill to carry out his view, and Mr. Phillips, in compliance with mv fcuj; gestions, fr.-imed a bill which bjeim" i law, having beeu ratilied the lt, dy of April, A.D., 1S03, to be f nm i o-i pace 218, of the Vol. of Laws lor lSGSand I860. 1 refer to these transactions with no wish to prejudice either Gov. Culdweil or Mr. Pliilio.s, but merely that j is tice may be uoue to everybody. Hav ing in fc!l ptblic. transactions tujseif invariably done exactly what 1 thought right, I wish my actions known to every one, ?.nd I presume that tliee gentlemen have similar fceli.igs, and are quite as willing as 1 am that tint part they have taken iu public busi ness should be understood. Iu fact, as at that time none of us, 1 suppose, had any reason to believe that tho appropriations would bo m sappUeJ. there is no just grouud for assai.mg us. In any view that may be takeu of the mitter, Judge Mcrnmon's position i. quite as defensible as thatofhii op ponent, and I think it is lime hat Gov. Caldwell's organ should uuler 8 tan (3 this.
