Therefore, Is it just that I should be cod fined
at my headquarters, when the Union . Defense
Committee, with whom I was associated, and
who approbated my conduct in the most exalted
terms, received more than the thanks of the
Administration, without any allusion to myself,

Democratic State Convention.
At a meeting of the Democratic State Cen
tral Committee held in Columbus, on the 5th
day of July, 1861, it was
Reiohrd, That it U expedient to hold a Demo
cratic State Convention at ioiumous, ou
Wednesday, August 7th, 1861
u nominate a Democratic State Ticket, to be
supported at the October election.
Rttolvrd, further, That all the electors ofthe
State of Ohio, who are in favor of perpetuating
the principles upon which our union wasiounu
ed, and are couvincod that the present State
and National Administrations are wholly in
competent to manage the government in its
present critical condition, as well as all who are
ooposed to the gross extravagance and corrup
tion now so alarmingly prevalent in public at
lairs, be earnestly invited to unite with the
Democracy in this hour of our country's peril,
and thus redeem the State, and place its ad
ministration in competent hands.
Retolved, further, that the basis of represen
tation in said Convention be one delegate for
every 500 vote, and an additional delegate lor
a fraction of 250 and upwards, cast for Thomas
J. S. Smith, for Supreme Judge ot the October
election in 1860, and that it be recommended
that the counties elect their delegates on this
The Democracy of Ohio and all other con
servative Union men, who are willing to co-operate
with them on the above basis, are requested
to meet In their respective counties at such time
as the local committees may designate, and ap
pjint delegites to the Democratic Convention
on the 7ih of August, to nomioate a State
ticket to be supported at the October election.
It ia presumed that no lover of his coontry
will require prompting at this time to induce
him to discharge bis duty, and therefore the
Committee is impressed with the belief that the
counties will eagerly respond to this call, and
that an imposing Convection will assemble in
Columbus at the time designated above, and
put iu nomination a ticket of good and true
men, to be supported for the various Stite of
Cces on the 21 Tuesday in October next.

Payment of the Three Months' Volunteers.
We hear many complaiots from tho vol no
tsers about the settlement with the State an
We understand that the extravagant prices
paid to contractors for worthless uniforms is
deducted from the pay of the men, leaving
them but a mere pittance in money. It is well
known that the price paid for overcoats and
other clothing was such as to afford the con
tractors large profits even as mnch as four
and six dollars on each. Now we aek, la it
right that these men, who have been for
three months scouring the hills and ravines of
Western Virginia, shooting and being shot at,
shall pay these profits out of their small allow
ance? If favorite shall be allowed to pocket
these largo profits, let it come from those who
gave it to them, and not the soldiers; their pay
is small enough at beBt. The volunteer sol
diers should be furnished their clothing at its
cost. We protest against these large profits be
iog deducted from their pay.
Republicanism and the Union.
In the interval between tbe inauguration of
Tresldent Lincoln en the 4th of March last and
the issuing of his proclamation for volunteers
on the 15th of April, there was in the Republi
can ranks a feeling of doubt and uncertainty as
to bow the Administration would deal with tbe
From the delay In taking any decided stand,
a suspicion arose in the minds of many who bad
contributed to their elevation to power, that the
President and his Cabinet might possibly favor
n amicable division of the Uoion.
. Taking their cne from this, Republican jour
nals and orators began to hint and some to
epeak plainly of the disadvantages of the Union
to the North, and to nrge that it was an arrange
ment that had answered it purpose and should
be replaced by a new one, and that a final sop
aratlon of tbe more Southern States from the
rest would be a peaceable, but a surs means of ao
complishing what, in their view, was of more
importance than anything else in the great con
troversy tbe downfall of slavery on this con
The radical abolition wing of tbe Republican
party took up the secession line pf argument,
and advocated tbe doctrine with a zeal and
earnestness that put to ehame its most energetic
supporters in tbe South. While the bombard
ment of Fort Sumter was progressing, Wihdiix
Phillips, who may be regarded as a representa
tive man of this class, made a speech in Boston,
deprecating, in the most emphatic manner, any
appeal to arms, insisting that tbe secessionists
were right in principle, and nrging that the only
way to get rid of slavery was to let the people
of those States that were so disposed go peace
ably out of the Uoion ; whereas, an attempt to
retain them in tbe Union, by a resort to force,
which wonld lead, in tbe end, to new compro
mises, would result In the re-establishment and
perpetuation of slavery.
Tbe President's proclamation came, calling
for seventy-five thousand volunteers and an ex
tra session of Conrress. This indicated that
the Cabinet had determined upon a war policy
This seemed at tbe moment to upset the calcu
lations of Northern Republican dlsunlonista and
lecestioniets. Sat, with remarkable speed and
facility, they apparently changed their views and
altered their course to linit tbe new state ot
things, still keeping before there the one single
and darling ohject, the emancipation ofthe
nogrocei : , . .' - '' V
Sl&very, tboy said, was at the bottom of tne
rebellion, and must be extinguished bofore we
cou'd have peace. Therefore, there must be no
compromise with slaveholders. The war must
go on till that which caused tbe rebellion, name
ly, slavery, was extirpated, or In a lair way oi
utter extinction.
.Still, while uttering these sentiments, they
budly professed to be the only true frlonds of
the Union- From being either covert or out
spoken advocate! of dissolution, Republican
journals and leaders suddenly became vocifer
ous for a war to save the Union, anu exmoiwu
the most Intolerant and ferocious spirit toward,
those whom they suspected of cherishing the
views they had themselves professed to enter
tain a few days before
In one week after his famous secession
speech in Boston, Windill Phillim delivered
another in the same place, giving the war, as be
exoroased it. a welcome "hearty and hot," and
rejoicing in it, not because it would preserve the
Union, but because it would extirpate slavery
declaring, while a shout of applause wis sent
op by his Republican hearers, that be did not
care whether secession was acknowledged or
cannonaded, so that the four millions negro
slaves In the South were set free.
The Fifteenth Regiment.
Some days since we alluded to tbe attack of
tbe Ohio State Journal on tbe field offieers ot
Col. Geo
the 15th Regiment, by
W. Anoriws. Since that, the Journal has
excepted Lieut -Col. Dickit from the remarks
applied in the first article to tbe " Hem cwcerir
of the regiment.
This is, no doubt, proper, and if that paper
bad taken back what it said of all tbe " field
officers " of tbe 15tb, it would have been still
more proper.
The slight offered Col. Andrews and the Ma
jor was entirely uncalled for. It is, no doubt,
trn that this reiriment. as nearly all others
in Western Virginia, " was not kept together,
but was cut up and separated tbe greater part
ofthe timo ;" but was this the fault of Col
Andrews 1 Certainly not. We have under
stood that the regiments In Western Virginia
were under coinmand of Generals McClellan,
Rosecrans and Hill, and that tbe Colonels
and their regiments were subject to the order of
the Generals. Col. Andrews, no doubt, order
ed the companies of bis regiment in accordance
with orders from his. superiors, whether it was
satisfactory to himself or his men. If L obey
ed orders, be did right; if be did not, be is lia
ble to censure, and no doubt would have receiv
ed it.
That the action of superior officers, some
times, when it is eminently proper, creates some
dissatisfaction, ia no doubt true, and it wonld be
strange if this were not the case; but if the ex
preesion of this dissatisfaction, by members of
the company, is to be made the excuse for de
preciating the service of the field officers, then
there are none who will escape it.
So far as we have been able to learn, Col.
Andrews, and the other field officers of tbe
regiment, and all tbe captains, have discharged
all the duties assigned tbem without murmur
or complaint. Tbcy returned with tbe men of
the regiment in good condition, and with the loss,
as we understand, of but one man, who was
killed. Col. Andrews tendered his services to
Geo. McOlellan in any position where be
could be of any service, but Gen. McClellan,
after thanking him, expressed his belief that be
had better "repair to Columbus, and give his
attention to reorganizing bis regiment, which
be hoped would be promptly effected."
This attempt to depreciate the influence of
the field officers, and prevent them from reor
ganizing the regiments, as desired by Gen.
McClellan, Is all wrong, and calculated to pre
vent the re-enlistment of the men and tbe re
organization of the regiment.
Gen. Wool and the Administration.
On our first page we publish a letter from
General Wool, exposing the treatment of him
self by tbe Administration. It will, no doubt,
be read with interest. The people have won
dered why it ii that this gallant old soldier has
been ignored and retired at Troy, New York
This letter explains all.
The people were informed that he was sent
to Troy to recruit bis health. We are, how.
ever, informed by the General that he ba never
enjoyed better health than this lummer, so that
dodge will avail them nothing.
The principal object in discontinuing Gen.
Wool in the service at New York seems to
have been to give Cdmhino, of the New York
World, a special pet of Cameron's, a chance to
make some money out of the contract for fur
nishing transportation and subsistence for tbe
We shall recur to this subject hereafter.
Statement of Gen. Patterson.
BALTIMORE, Thursday, July 25.
Harper's retry, Sd Inst., says:
"Gen. Johnston retreated to Winchester,
where be had thrown up extensive entrenob
menta, and bad a large number of heavy guns
I could have turned bis position, and attacked
him in tbe rear, but be bad received large re
enforcements from Mississippi, Alabama and
Georgia a total force of over thirty-five thous
and Confederate troops, and five thousand Vir
ginia Militia. My force is less than twenty
thousand. Nineteen regiments, whose term of
service was up, or would be within a week, all
refused to stay one hour over their time but
four, viz: two Indiana regiments, frank Jar

(the Twenty-fourth Pennsylvania). Five regi
ment have gone home. Two more goto day,
and three more to morrow. To avoid Doing cut
off with tbe remainder, I fell back, and occupied
this place."
If Gen. Patterson had attacked Johnston
with tbe force stated above, and whipped him,
it would be all right; but If our twenty thous
and men bad been cut up and defeated, and
been compelled to retreat, the bowler would
have demanded that Gen. Patterson ought to
