Thi Altoona Meeting.
The Wheeling iVel#/ true to its perni.
cldni partisunism, has been trying to alarm
tbe: fears of somebody in relation to the
meeting of the loyal:.Governors yesterday
at'Altoona, in Pa. ' It smells eomethiug in
tho?K.meeting, when there is nothing to
aoielL The meeting was called at the
Instance of Govs. Onrtin, Pierpoint, and
Tod, in order to consult upon matters re*
lating to the border, and for no other pnr
poH^- -The idea was a patriotic one and
we have no doubt thejconsnltatfon will re
sult in good. To try to cast suspicion upon
such men asthose^who called the meeting is
to pyr mind additional reason for suspect
ing, the gradually developiog policy of the
Wheeling Prtaa.
Their L*nat'Opportunity.
Not an axiom it clearer than this propo
sition?vi*?that Slaver/ is tbe cause of
this war. Had we not bad slaver/ among

Preaident recognizes this great troth apd
so does the country. In tbe natnro of things
then/ as the Louisville Journal ably re
marked a few days ago. 4*A war for slave
ry Js a war against it." And this in the
issue that the rebellious South has pre
lected to the country and to the world ?
The President takes up the issue, and any a
if foti will have slavery without the Union
we will have the Union without slavery.?
So pe it, he says. You have chosen yoor
issue?oling to if you dare.
But an hour is left to tbe South, as it
were; to make their final, irrevocable
choice. The President puts the question
to .them,. for once and forever, will you

Union bUrs been great. As aid to Gover
nor Peirpoint, he has bad tbe opportunity
of spending not only bis salary, but some
$4,000 besides, in equipping volunteers and
otherwise forwarding their interests. An
earnest, working man in behalf of the
Union, be is of course a friend to equal
rights and desir?t:tbe removal of the curse
of slavery from'Virginia; and be appreci
ates a like character in others. In General
Milroyhe believei tbe nation h.s a leader
who is well fitted to cope with Jackson.?
Bold, enterprising, courageous, he shonld

Editors Intelligencer :?
Without expecting much, either of amuse
meat or instruction from . them, I some!
limes glsuce into such papers as the Whee
ling Press, the Cincinnati Enquirer, the
Ohio Statesman, and others of that tribe.?
These papers apd their allies hare a bard
task to perform. They are trying to re
verse tbe Scripture maxim that "bo man
can serve two masters." They pretend to
support tbe Government against tbe Na>
tionnl Enemy. But they say ono word
against the enemy and ten against their
own Unoflanding neighbors at home. But1
the word which they speak against the en*
emy is a word of moderate, formal, techni
cal, opposition; while the words which they
Speak against their own neighbors, are
words of bate, of malignity, of cunning
slander and foul abuse. Tbeir tree is like
tbe Indians. It has got so strait that it
leans qait* over to tbe Southern side.?
They hope for Southern rotes after tbe res- |
toration of tbe Union. Even in this they
may be mistaken. For the Southerners
may prefer bold, determined, open enemies,
to sneaking, treacherous, double-faced
friends. But their efforts are great enongb,
probably, forerer to prerent a restoration
of tbe Union. Did these cunning and un
scrupulous men erer think of that contin
gency? Did they erer reflect that with
tbeir powerful aid secession msy be too
strong to be put down? Let them pause.

Letter from Colonel Cranor
Headquarters Camp MoClube, >
Louisa, Kt., Sept. 10, 1862. f
Editors Intelligencer :
A rumor has reached me that Captain
Jaines K. Smith, of Virginia, was arrested
by me some time ago for gross misdemea
nors committed by him at various times in
Western Virginia, I wish to say this much
through your paper by way of explanation
and correction :
Some time in tbe snmmer of 1861, Major
Ralph Ormstead and a Lientenant of tbe
6th Virginia Regiment was murdered near
ly opposite this place by a Captain William
Smith, of Kentucky. Some time in the
latter part of tbe month of July, or first of
August last, I was introduced to "Captain
Smith" (James E ) and was informed by
others?probably rebel sympathisers, that
he was the notorious rebel Captain Smith.
? immediately ordered him under arrest,
and did not learn my mistake nntil after
C*pt. William Smith effected his escape
from our lines. Since that time I hive
frequently seen Capt. James E. Smith, to
whom I explained the matter satisfactorily;
to him I acknowledge my indebtedness for
important services rendered tbe Govern
ment since my acquaintance with bim, and
I am satisfied the loyal men of Western
Virginia will ever look npoh bim as tbey do
now, as one of her truest, bravest and most
efficient men in their behalf, for the pre
servation of their homes and their Govern
ment. Very respectfully,
J. Craxor, Col. Corn'dg.

GENERAL SEWS FROM WASH
INGTON.
Special Washington Dtapatches.
TOB PRRSIDENT'S PROCLAMATION.
The great event of the day here' Is the
proclamation of the Presideut orderiogthe
execution of the war measures of the last
Congress, and promising freedom to the
slaves in all States that persist in the re
bellion against the Government. This act,
so long expected, so long delayed, bids fair
to simplify at once the issues of the war,
immediately to array against each other
the unconditionally loyal and the rebellious
of all shades and grades. If the cause of
the Union and free institutions is strongest,
this tent will show it, and the only ques
tion of its triumph will then be the power
in the Government to execute It* policy
with courage and vigor.

THB OLD ISSUS or TREASURY XOTBS.
I have the following statistics in regard
to the old issue of United States Treasury
Notes, receivable for duties, of the 60,000,
GOO issue: $28,420,000 have been returned
to the Department and burned; $43,000
have been returned, and are not yet burned;
$4,000,000 have been redeemed, bnt not
yet returned to the Department, leaving
$27,537,000 yet outstanding. As only
about half the whole issue bas yet been
redeemed, and as the Government will
be able to get no gold in payment of duties
so long as any of these notes remain In
possession of the public, it is plain that
the specie required to pay the interest
falling due on Oct. 1?$4,000,000?as well
as that falling due Jan. 1?$5,000,000?
must be procured by the Government by
purchase or loan.
Thirty thousand dollars of small currency
notes were to day paid out at the Treasury
Department, and were taken within an
hour.

OVERLAND MAIL.
The Post office Department has ordered
the continuance of the Pacific mail on the
overland route, having received reliable
information that there is no daoger to be
apprehended from their being tampered
with by Indians. It is positively asserted
that since the removal of the Cherokee
tribe at no time has there been any neces
sity for the mailt being discontinued. The
great overlaad mail now passes daily thro*

THE WOCSDKD OJf AMD SEAR Til* BATTI.E
riKLD.
A lwtter written this rooroiog ba? just
been received here from a surgeon still on
the field of battle, who went out in charge
of the first train of hospital supplies. He
writes that he and those with him, agents
of the Sanitary Commission, have given
attention to at least 5,000 Uuion wounded.
They were mostly clustered about barns
and stables, or under trees upon the field.
There was plenty of clean straw for them
to lie upon, and sufficient medical and
surgical attendance; but a great want of
medicines, especially, and provisions of all
kinds.
The writer says that every available
place of shelter waa occupied by the suf
Iferers, the hospital ground extending over
a space not less than thirty miles in cir
cumference. There is not a barn, farm*
house, store, church, or sohool-house be
tween Boonsborough, Sharpsburg, and
Smoketown, that is not gorged with the
wounded, Rebel and Union.
Even the grain cribs, in many cases the
cow stable*, and, in one instance, the man
ger, were filled. Several thousands lie in
the open air upon straw. On Sunday tbe
medical headquarters were moved to
Sharpsburg. Great dissatisfaction was
said to be expressed at the long delay of
tbe stores sent forward by tbe Medical Bu
reau which did not arrive.
For two days after tbe immense amount
of supplies sent by tbe Sanitary Commis
; sion bad been received, the delay was caus
ed by a neglect to furnish independent
transportation.
OOKDITtON OP OEM. HOOKER.
General Hooker was visited at bis quar
ters at the Insane Hospital to-day by tbe
President, Senator Hale and several offieers
of the army. The wound in bis left foot is
no longer painful, and a speedy recovery is
anticipated by tbe attending surgeons. The
ball passed through the bottom of the foot,
but nono of tbe bones were injured The
General is in excellent quarters,and receives
the kindest attention and treatment from
Dr. Nichols, Superintendent of the Hospi
tal. Gen. Hooker chafes Somewhat under
tbe reflection that when he was obliged to
leave the field he was whipping tbe enemy,
and felt certain of destroying their army. |
His remark at the time be was bit^TM, that
if they hud left him alone until night he
would not have cared what might have
happened to him afterwards. He says that
be bad tbe enemy rolling towards tbt river,
and with Sumner's fresh troops be was
confident of annihilating them. It Is a
mistake to say that be bad been repulsed
when General Sumner came up. His men
were holding their ground, and were full
of enthusiasm. When the supports went
into the fight Hooker's men cheered them
on, feeling that with their Continued efforts
the rebels would be scattered like chaff.
General Hooker and'his staff accord to the
corps formerly under General McDowell
tbe praise of having behaved splendidly.

Special to tbe Cincinnati Commercial.
Wasbixgtov, Sept. 22.
Our latest information from tbe army
brings no news of Rny thing beyond one
or two unimportant skirmishes in the vi
cinity of 8bepherdstown along the line of
the Potomae. On Saturday a portion of
dykes' brigade and the 4tb Michigan regi
ment crossed the river under the protec
tion Of a heavy federal battery on the Mary
land side, and succeeded, in the face of a
terrific fire from rebel batteries and infan
try, in gaining the opposite shore, and effec
ting a landing.
A short skirmish ensued, in which tbe
Federals were opposed by a battery of four
guns, situated on a commanding eminence,
and a brigade of rebel infantry. Undaun
ted by the odds our men charged, with
cheers, on the rebels, and drove their artil
lerymen from their guns at the point of the
bayonet, and held possession of tbe bat
tery. The enemy was soon reinforced, and
advanced with overwhelming numbers, up
on our forces. They held their gronnd for
nearly two hears, while a Federal battery
of twenty heavy gnns played on tbe rebel
masses, opening long lanes thrbugh them
at every disohargc.
At the end of this time our troops were
recalled, and crossed the river to Maryland
safely under the protection of the national
battery, bringing the rtbel gnnt with (hem,
and several other trophies, including a flag
belonging to a South Carolina regiment?
la - this daring operation the federal loss
was insigoificaat, amounting in all to not
more than SO killed and wounded.
I telegraphed yon yesterday that It was
ttopposed that a large foree of rebels yet
remained oa this side of the Potomac ?
This arose from the fact that sometime
daring Friday a large fotfee.>f rebels re^
crossed from Virginia inib Maryland, with
an objectUtot' fully knttrn," probably to
attract Attention to one of onr flanks bjr j
a formidable demonstration.
The whole foroe consisted, as nearly as
can be ascertained, of about 20,000 Infantry
and cavalry, and about 20 pieoes of artil
lery. all under command of the redoubtable
Stuart, of White House memory. A Fed
eral force was despatched to meet them,
and that same night a sharp skirmish ea- j
sued at Newport, which resulted in the j
rebels taking the back track into Virginia, j
without having inflicted a material loss >
upon our troops.
It is believed that the rebel army, in its i
hasty retreat from Aotieuim Creek, separ- J
ated into several bodies, wbieb- sought to
reach Virginia by the many different fords
leading across the Potomac. At many of
those fords were sharp engagements yes
terday, between the retreating rebels and
the.pursuing nationals. In every caae onr
troops succeeded in killing and capturing
large numbers of the enemy, and forcing
them to abandon their material. Without
doubt the rebels are now all across the riv
er, aod the campaign in Maryland has end
ed, not only for the present but forever.
The experiment of invading the Free
States, has cost the rebels not less than
fifty thousand men ia killed, wounded and
prisoners, besides an enormous quantity
of* war materials,, From all indications,
the rebels are rapidly leaving the line of
the Potomac, and making their way back
to Richmond. Prisoners represent them
to be utterly demoralised and dispirited
with the unfertunate issue of their attempt
to invade the loyal States. Stragglers are
by scores hourly giving themselves up,
who say they are sick of the war, and sat
isfied that the Federal Government is too
powerful for them.
Refugees and stragglers juit in to-day,
report that the main portion of the rebel
army is concentrating at tV'inchester, the
latter being ordered to report there.
Pittsburg Railroad Bonds*
An address ia being distributed to the
holders of bonds to the city of Pittsburg,
issued to railroad companies in payment
of subscriptions to the stock of the same
companies, emanating from the finance
committee of the Pittsburg city couneils
and proposing n compromise. From the
address wo learn that the city of Pittsburg
issued bonds to the sevornl railroad compa
nies to the amount of $1,800,000. There
: is now due and unpaid coupons on said
bonds $3,544,290. The valuation of the'
whole country for purposes of taxation is
27,504,400. Of the citv, $10,651,276, or
38 72-100 per cent of the whole amount,
and therefore tho proportion ofthe county
debt which the city may be compelled to
boar, would amount to $l,27o,640,99,
which, added to the amount of city debt
as above, would give an entire liability
of $4,820,960,99, which, divided among
11,801 taxables in the nine ward*, in
equal toov'or $100fotevory taxable poraon
iu the city.
The annual expenses of tho city with
this debt are 3569,023 80. To meet this,
$130,000 would bo derived from water
tux, wharves, Ac., leaving $430,623 80
to be raisod by direct taxation, requiring
a levy of 4J per eont, or 45 mills per
annum nn tbe assessed value of taxable
proporly in tho city, leaving no surplus
for lust taxes, oxponses of collection or
sinking fund. The peuplo of Pittsburg
are satisfied that thoy cannot bear the
burdon, and that any attempt to do so
Would bo utterly ruinous to them indivi
dually, and that the business and property
of tho city would rapibly deteriorate,
rendering them every year lese able to
meet the liability.

that tbsy bate lately Issned a aew style of Watch,
expresaly designed for Soldiers and others who desire
a good watch at a moderate price. These watches
are inteoded to displace the worthless, cheap watch
as of British and Swiss manufacture, with which the

to keep tine when they were made, being ?ftu?
manufactures, sent to this country, becauae uwn'e.
able at home, and used here only tor jockeying and
ncindllng purposes.
We offer to sell our Watch, which is of TOE MOST
SUBSTANTIAL MANUFACTURE, AS ACCURATE
AND DURABLE TIME KEEPER, and in Sterling
Silver Cases, Hunting pattern, at as low a pries as is
asked for the trashy Ancrt$ and Ispina of foreign
make, already referred to.
