SATURDAY, AUGUST 8, 1803.
TB£ NEWS.
In spite of what some of the army coi
respondents persist in forwarding, chiefly
fir m'the force of habit, we do not look for
any Immediate stirring event in the region
oi the Knppnhannock, nor is it indispen-
Bible to the programme, of this, the fetal
Bummer to the rebellion. Let Meade hold
Ihc Confederacy Tjy the head, and other
anmos, and'other commanders, will rain
in telling blows upon the monster’s ribs,
backbone, and sides, will crack its limbs,
Shat off its wind, pat out its eyes, and
When its gashed and ghastly length is
Stretched helpless and dying, ‘Richmond
will be a good place lor the last spark of
Vitality to depart from.
All looks well, and promising at Charles
ton. Gen. Gilmore’s mills grind slowly,
hut the giist is sore.
By reference to our Madison dispatch,
ol Thursday evening, it will be seen that
at the Wednesday night session of the
Copperhead State Convention, a full ticket
was pul in the field, headed by H. L.
3h:lmcr, of Milwaukee) as the c&ndidate
for Governor. This Palmer is noted for
nothing but intense partisanship of the
Copperhead type, and is a fitting accom
pi-mmcnt and impersonation of the seces
sion platform upon which he stands. The
loyal men of Wisconsin, aided by her sons
in the field, will buiy Mr. Palmer so deep
that no resurrection will reach him. -She
insult designed for the loyalty of Wiscon
sin in these nominations and the resolu
tions that accompany them, deserves just
this fate.
The recent statement in the dispatches,.
IhM Gen. Rosecrans was on his way to
“Washington, grew out of the confusion of
lii*numc with that of Gen. Rosseau, .now
at the Capital, on matters connected with
the war in the Southwest He is urging a
large increase of our mounted force, which
will doubtless be accomplished.
Read our Springfield letter, and sec
whether "it is not* time for loyal men to
awaken to a full recognition of the danger
meditated by our home enemies. Happily
our recent successes over the rebels has cast
a chill “upon their sympathizers among us t
but they are still dive and watching their
Opportunity.
Our dispatches gives the intelligence
that work isto he immediately commenced
on the ordnance and arsenal buildings at
Columbus, Ohio, Indianapolis and Rock
Island, Illinois.
Jeff. Davis, having freshly concluded
his mockery of lasting and prayer, falls,
buck into his old practices of malignant
falsifying ol the Administration at Wash
ington, in which work he has no
equals outride our Northern Cop
perhead Conventions. Really there
is & striking family resemblance
between the style and subject matter of
this arch-traitoris tirade against President
Lincoln and this war, and.the frothy ex
pectorations of our Northern enemies of
the Union. 'They will fall together, and
lie in one grave.
7B£ EDUCATIONAL CONVENTION.
“The schoolmaster is abroad” upon an
excellent errand, and in the best of com
pany when he shall make one of such a
gathering as that whose sessions have just
closed in this city. The National Educa
tional Convention presented an aspect of
more than ordinary intelligence and cozn
liucss, possessing both to & marked de
gree. The numerous speakers will never
find more attentive audiences than these
v. here patient listening was made a duty
even in the rare occasions where that vir
tue was its own sole reward. It could but
befall that at times wordiness stood up for
eloquence, and muddinessmasked shallow
ness for profundity, but these were excep
tions, and the teachers will cany home
with them many golden grains ot profit
imm the intellectual threshing floor ol
lb dr Convention. Viewed simply in
itself, the gathering was interesting and
important; bnt considered as a represent
ative body, and that these be they Into
whose hands it Is given to train the boys
and girls of to-day, their assembly is fitly
termed national, and their nßsnmhling kos
& national importance.

THE LATE STEAMBOAT CAS
UALTY.
FURTHER DETAILS OF THE
LOSS OF THE RUTH. ‘
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Cazbo, Anguet 5, 1863.
Taking the steamer Nevada, several pay
masters and their clerks, Capt. Pegram and
Hr. Oglesby, clerk of the Bath,* went down
this morning to where the destruction of the
steamer Buth took place last night Nothing
was discovered of any importance. Pieces of
the wreck were lying near the Missouri shore,
two or three'mHes below the point where the
fluth was first run aground, surrounded by
dead mules and cattle yet fastened to the ma
chinery, but no human bodies were discover
ed in the vicinity, and no news of any could
be obtained from, residents along the shore.
On the return trip they wcrehailed just above
Island No.T, and told that three or four sol
diers'had gone up to Cairo upon the Ken
tucky shore, having been saved from the
wreck, but thus far none have imported here.
Since my first dispatch I have been able to
gather the following important particulars of
the dreadful affair:
The fire was first seen near the carpenter’s
.shop, left of the wheclhouse, under the ladles’
cabin, when the boat was just below Norfolk
Lauding, below Island No. 1. The fire came
from all forward almost like a flash, and be
fore anything could be done, the steamer was
enveloped In flames. •
The steamer’s pomp, furnished with excel
lent hose, was at once applied by the male,
but to no effect. Nothing could subdae such
a sheet of flame. The boat was, as. before
stated, beaded immediately to the shore, aud
a Ith a full head of steam ran upon pie beach
with such force that some thirty feet of her
model was left impressed in the solid clay of
the shore. Both wheels were moving when
she struck, and had they both-continued to
revolve, all on board might have got off, bat
the bank was very steep, and nothing to tie
to, and one wheel suddenly ceased to revolve,
remaining stationary hardly one minute. All
who escaped did so during those few seconds.
The other wheel continued in motion, and
turned the remaining part ot the vessel into
the river.
Major Brinton, Paymaster in charge of
moneys to pay Grant's army, was standing
upon the upper deck, leaning over the bul
warks, when a shock came behind him and
sent him headlong overboard, and after strik
ing upon the lower guards and hitting one
man and knocking him over, the Major fell
into the watarrncar the wheclhonse, and
was eevcrciy^£nrt , ‘and somewhat braised
about but he finally jaade his es
cape. Had he not been thus knocked over
board by the shock, he would not have had
rime to get ofij as he had no idea bnt that the
beat would stick upon shore. His clerk, H.
S. Goddard, was also fortunate enough to es
cape. In the rash of getting ashore, some
poisons fell into the river, bnt it is belipved
noccwcie drowned then. A corporal, hav
ing in charge five privates, jumped ashtre
with lib men, bat stepping down the
bank he unfortunately went under the heavy
staging which had been pushed oat to facili
tate the escape to shore, and' as the host
swung ent the stage fell off and crushed
three to death. The remainder, who'were so
unfortunate as to fallen getting ashore, seem
ed to bs tciror stricken, and lost all presence
of mind. Captain Pegrum shouted to them
to launch another stage, by which they could
all have been saved; for if the stage had not
.reached shore, they could have clung to it in
the water nimFassistance could have reached
them', but although they were standing on
the stage and around it, no effort
was made to shove it overboard. An
old river man who was still on board, tried
by every mums to induce them to do so, bat
all his efforts failed. He then jumped
overboard and saved himself by swimming
a&hcre. It Is thought all who remained on
board were lost, with one or two exceptions.
' This number has been variously estimated at
from twenty-live to sixty, but the most reli
able authority seems to be that which places
it at thirty. Paymaster 3L Jameson was
among those left on board when she swung
out into the stream, but he threw his trunk
overboard and jumped in after it, he suc
ceeded Lj its raft-like assistance in gaining
'the shore. His clerk, Mr. H. G. Lampson,
could not swim, and his chief provided him
with a shatter and assisted him to leave the
boat, hut as Mr. Lampson has not since been
heard o£ it is supposed he is lost.
Mr. J. G. Greycs and Mr. Wm. H. Loomis,
Pcymaster’s cloaks, went down along the
rm-r bank in search of tome kind -of water
raft with which to take the uclortuatc people
iroin the homing wreck, hot finding nothing
except an old rotten jdugent, they risked
ihemtUm lull, hoping something might he
done even with this. They immediately
paddled to the stem of the boat, hut found no
one, and could hear no one upon the wreck.
Eight Paymasters were on borad, and had
in charge collectively $2,000,000. The whole
of this money was lo&>-

and their clerks 5, ‘

among the missing; two negro deck passen
gers, one negro woman, a cabin passenger,
and one chambermaid are among the lost,
but as the books and papers of the boat were
all lost, wc could not get the names of the
unfortunates, who arc no doubt burned or
drowned, as they would Jump into the liver
rather than be burned. No-white women or
children arc known to be lost.
The officers of the boat didall In their
powurto save the lives of their passengers.
It is barely possible the names of most of
the rescued may yet be secured.
FROM ST. PAUL
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
St. Paul, Aug. 7,1853.
Advices from Gen. Sibley to the 9th of July,
have been received. They were within thirty
five miles of Devil’s Lake,.and had found no
trace of Indians, except ettmlJ scouting par*
tits.. Some Bed Blver half-broods, who were
encamped within forty miles of the'expedi
tion, come in and reported that the Indians
had all left Devil's Lake some time since, and
on ihelffih ult,were encamped on the Missouri
Cotean, thirty miles beyond Camp Bedßlver.
Little Crow had gone, with nine men', to
the Yellow Medicine Elver, a branch of the
Minnesota, and on the old Sionx reservation,
the scene of the outbreak last spring. HU
people, withstanding Buffalo and other Sls
teions, comprise the camp mentioned above,
and number about 3,000 men, women
children. On receiving the information, Gen.
Sibley decided to establish a fortified camp,
and leave his heavy transportation, while the
remainder of the force, with twenty-five days’
mUons, pufch on after the Indians. The force
he takes with him consists of seven compan
ies of cavalry, twenty-three of infantry, and
three sections of a battery, numbering 2,300
men. In order to enable Indians who desire
jtp maintain friendly relations, to do so, Gen.
Sibley has sent two half-breed scouts to the
camp whercStanduigßufEilo and his followers
arc, to ascertain what they intend to do. If
they arc hostile, it is doubtful whether the
scouts will 7 ever return. This news confirms
.theflight of Little Crow, and only varies os
to his whercggrouts.
The twenty"five days march will probably
dose Gen. Sibley's active campaign for-this
icascn. The scarcity of buffalo wits so great
'that the Indians would be obliged to scatter,
amTthey will leave before he can reach them.
A horrible Indian murder took place four
-.milea-from Glencoe, in McLeod county, last
.-Sunday, Three Indians attacked the house
of a German, The German was. terribly and
btah j injured, and bis wife was shot through
e face and her jaw broken* -Another man.
at the house was severely wounded. The In
dians used gone, and bows and arrows, and
all the persons were shot inside the house.
The citizens assembled in large force, and en
gaged in pursuit, but at last accounts they
had not found the Indians. Large fires in the
Big Wood arc risible from Glencoe, and it Is
feared they are houses or haystacks burning.
A Copperhead city Justice immortalized
himself to-day by imposing a petty fine on a
Deputy Provost Marshal, for arresting a wo
man who resisted an enrolling office. The
accused had charge of the State Penitentiary,
and Is one of the most respectable citizens in
the State. He will probably go to jail, and
betaken out on a habeaseorput. The 'aflair
crcetes a great feeling of indignation.
(Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.}
St. Paul, August 7.1563.
A paragraph published in the St. Paul
jftw of July 10th, containing the killing of
an Indian near Hutchinson, having reached
General Sibley, he and his officers who were
well acquainted with Little Crow, say that
the description corresponds exactly with him,
and especially in some peculiar deformities of
the body. They are confident that he is a dead
Indian, and his reported departure from Yel
low Medicine-might account for his having
been in the vicinity where he was killed. Tne
account, when published, said that the Indian
resembled Little Crow, but the general belief
being that he was at Devil’s Lake, It was not
then thought probable that he had been
killed. Whether this is true or not all the in
dications are now that there will be no battle
fought with lh(T Indians, and if they are
found in force they will succcd in passing
.themselves ofl for friendly Indians. Three
hundred Bed Elver Chippewas have visited
Gen. Sibley’s camp, and had a friendly talk
with him, Capt. Fisk’s overland expedition
Je about eighteen miles from Gen. Sibley.
FROM MADISON.
The Wisconsin Copperhead Con-
rention.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Madison, Aug, 7,1565.
My dispatch of last night gave you the or
ganization of the State Copperhead Conven
tion, the day session of which was occupied
byblatantfrothingot treason, and denuncia
tion of the Administration. The platform
adopted reaffirms Byan’s Address, and urges
offices of peace and a Constitutional Conven
tion. *At the evening session the work of
nomination began:
H. L. Palmer was nominated for Governor,
having received a majority of all the votes
cast on the informal ballot, getting 170 votes
out of 252 on the first formal ballot. W. P.
Lynde receiving 11, and the balance -scat
tering. ”
Mr. Palmer made a short speech accepting
the nomination, endorsing every word of the
platform, advocating submission to all laws
legally passed, but resistance to the usurpa
tion of the administration, which was so fear
folly trampling on the rights of the people,
and substituting of a weak man for
the provisions of the Constitution!
An informal ballot, was taken for Lient.
Governor, when fifteen or twenty candidates
appeared, none getting over rixty votes. Af
ter some discussion, Nelson Dewey, of Grant
county, was nominated by acclamation.
EmU Bothe, of Jefferson, was nominated
for Secretary of State by acclimation.
An informal ballot for Treasurer gave C. S.
Benton and Ben. Ferguson a nearly 'equal
number of votes. After an excited discussion,
a second ballot was token, and Beaton, of La
crosse, was nominated by a large majority.
Two ballots were taken for Attorney Gen
eral Bndd, of Outagamie county, standing
the highest on the first—bat on the second
E. A. Waklcy, of Dane, was declared nomin
ated by a email majority, amid cries of
“ fraudulent tally.*’
After considerable wrangling another bal
lot was taken,' on which Wakley had a large
majority.
The convention completed the ticket by
uomitating H S. Pierpont, ol Manitowoc,
Bank Comptroller, over Sat. Clark; Yolney
French, Superintendent cf Public Distrac
tion, by acclamation: and J. B. Boham, State
Prison Commissioner.
Without doing anything further, beyond
ihe appointment-ol a Central Committee,
the Convention adjourned at half-past two
o’clock this evening. In the Convea.
tlon there has cot been an expression
of praise for our gallant armies, rejoicing at
victories, sympathy with efforts to suppress
rebellion, or condemnation of the Infamous
Southern traitors.
FROM SPRiNQFi£LD.
[Special Dispatch to the Chicago Tribune.]
Springfield, HI., Ang. 7,1663.
It Is totally false, as telegraphed to the Chi
cago Times, that the Governor is doing noth
ing to have the State credited with her troops,
or to procure the transfer to the credit of Illi
nois of troops now serving in Mlesonri regi
ments. On the contrary, he is making every
possible effort to accomplish both these ob
jects, on which he Is in correspondence with
the War Department and the Missouri au
thorities. Adjt Gen. Fuller has nearly com
pleted his arrangements with the Adjutant
General of Missouri, by which our State will
be credited with all Illinois soldiers enlisted
in Missouri regiments. The balance in favor
of Illinois will in this way reach from 8,000
to 5,000.
Gcv. Tates, who has also been laboring in*
ceescntly to obtain the transfer of sick and
wcurdedUlinois soldiers to their own State,

Surgeon General, U. S. A., to the effect that
authority lias been received from Washing

tals in Bt. Louis to the hospitals nearest their
homes, whenin the opinion of the Assistant
Surgeon General, or of the proper medical
' authority, such transfer is necessary for their
-recovery.

THE DRAFT IN WASHINGTON.
The draft has been the all-absorbing topic
for the last few days, to the exclusion of all
other themes, whether martial, political, sci
entific or literary. As one man out of every
three and a third was to be drawn, the chances
for an “election** greatly preponderated in
favor of Provost Marshal SUeetz. The draw-,
ing took place at the City Hall, in the pres
ence of a large and deeply interested audi
ence, who evicced ranch good humor, and
passed good-humored remarks as certain well
known names were announced in the lucky
list.
The list presents some names not unknown
to fame, for the production of which, the
blind officiol, whose fate it was to decide the
Me .of others, deserves dac credit for flue
discrimination. The people out in the “back
woods settlements,** will- undoubtedly be
much assured as to the ultimate Issue of the
war, when they know that Napoleon Bona
parte, George Washington, Andrew Jackson,
and Robert E. Leo arc now among the valiant
defenders of jhe Union. * .
Altogether the draft passed off without a
murmur. It is said some secessionists find
ing themselves among the “ lucky ones*’ at
tempted to avoid a proper response, by taking
unto themselves wings and fifing away, bat
meeting with sundry Impediments of a point
ed and determined character, they decided
to submit. Those who have the three hun
dred dollars to spare the Government look
calm as a summer morning. Many of this
are in the various Departments, and ns a
general rule these will procure substitutes,
rather than pay the money over to the Board
of Enrolment.
A rather amusing illustration as to the In
fluence of self-interest over prejudice, is fur
nished by the draft in the District of Colum
bia. The community raif cd its hands In holy
horror when it was proposed to include ne
groes In the enrollment. “What! make nig

Mr. Fnlton, of the Baltimore American ,
writes to that paper from Port Koyal, July 30;
In conversation with some officers from the
Wabash, I find a very general confidence pre
vailing, that within the next ten diystboflili
of Sumter would bo consummated, and that
Charleston must soon alter succumb. They
report everything os progressing satlafactori-
Jj, and the fall ot Fort Wagner as one of the
events of the next few days. The constant
bembardment now progressing, is, I learn;
mainly to conceal the erecting, by Gen. Gil
more, of a masked battery within five hun
dred yards of Fort Wagner, and also ttf pro
tect his troops In the operation. This new
battwy was expected to be ready to open on
■ the enemy to-morrow, and its advent will be
u grand fosilade from the Monitors and the
Ironsides. It will be a sight worth seelo*,
and as I have just arranged to return direct to
the bar, I hope to obtain a good view of the
event, and to be able to record to yon its en
tile success. Fort Wagner is already a sight
less mass of sand, and with tbe boring shell
of Gen. Gilmore, strong efforts will he made
to penetrate its magazine aud pat a summary
end to the vile concern. However, even if
this attempt should fail, there is “no such
wordaalUil” in.the vocabulary of Admiral
Dablgrcn and General Gilmore.
It is the. general impression on all hands
here that ihc rebels have evacuated all the
casemates of Sumter, aud luteal to rely on
her parapet guns-entirely in the approach
lug assault. It is even said that her entire
casemates are filled with sand-biige,-and that
all her best guns have been.crowded to the
parapets. If this is to, it indicates that even
the unsuccessful assault of Anrfl last must
have been so terrible that there (a an tinwil
ipgness io risk the iate of the foit to another
equate assault from the Monitors!

For the last three days and nights the rebels

this latter fort they have mounted some lon" 1
range guns, which they fire with treat accu

Monday was to fire thirteen sTdts every
twenty minutes, and our boys,(laying to
heart this rule, jumped under cover with
great regularity. The nombeji of men
wounded by this enfilading Are from John

Baltimore, Ang. 7.—The Amsiiean ol this

which contain the folio wing address of the
President to the soldiers of the Confederate
States:
than two years-.of a war, one
scarcely equalled In the nvmber, magnitude
and fearful carnage of its battles, a warfare
in which jour courage and fortitude have
illustrated your country and attracted not
only gratitude at home, but admiration
obroau, your enemies continue n straggle in
which onr Dual triumph must be inevitable.
■' Unduly dated with their recent successes,
they imagine that temporary. reverses can
> quell.onr spirits or shake your determination.
Theyorcnow gathering heavy'masses for a
gcneiaUlnvasion, in the vaiariiope that by
desperate cflort, success may .at length be
reached. You know too well, my country
men, what they mean by success.
Their malignant rage aims at . nothing
less than the extermination of
your claves, your women and your children.
They seek to destroy what they cannot plun
der. They propose as spoils of victory that
your homes shall be portioned among
wretches whose atrocious cruelty has stamped
infamy on their Government. They • design
to create senile insurrection and light the
fires of ineendarism wherever they can reach
your homes, and they debauch an inferior
race heretofore decile and contented, by
promising them the indulgence of the vilest
passions as the price of their treachery.
Conscious of Inability to prevail bv legiti
mate warfare, not daring to make peace lest
they should be hurled from their so its of
power, the men who now rule in Washing
ton muco even to confer on tho subject of
putting an.end to outrages which dl-gncc
oursgo, or listen to a suggestion for conduct
ing the war according to the usages of civili
zation. Fellow citizens, no alternative islcft
ro- i -c r h. C °; b wftlS
i ft T on out to stretch forth your hands
it. For this all-that Is necessary is
»aocie who [are culled to the field, by . every
motive that can nerve human hearts, should
promptly repair to tho post of duty, should
eland by their comrades now in front of the
foe, and thus so strengthen the Confederacy
as to.eusure success. ' .
.Davis then appeals to those who have ab
sented themselves from their posts, to return
to their duty, and declares a general pardon
aijd amnesty to allow officers and yfenmowj
absent without leave, who shall withouPdelffv:
jeturn to their posts within twenty davs after*
the publication of this proclamatiou'in toe
State where the absentee may bo. .-v .
This pardon extends to all who have been
accused or convicted and are undergoing sen-'
itmco for absence without leave or desertion,
excepting those twice convicted of desertion.
He then says, Anally:
I conjure my country women, wives, moth
ers, sisters, and daughters of the Confeder
aev to use their all powerful influence in aid
c 2V t ? l . a^ d ouc crowning- sacritice to
those which their patriotism has so freely and
constantly offered on their country’s altar,

guns, three of which are 7-iach rifles, and are
stationed In the casements. Theother three are
