the inlerc*l neon which'om never be met, they
nioft bring this war to a speedy dose,'
S Tost the repeal and revocation of all uncon
stitutional edicts and pretended laws, an imsw
diaU armistice, and a nsUonad convention for. the
ne&ceful adjurtment ol enr troubles are the only,
mean* of saving our nation from unlimited calam
ity aad ruin.
*lhc ten or twelve other resolutions of the
string consist of the usual Copperhead
abuse of the Administration and denuncia-
tion of “arbltiary arrests,” of traitors, “mil
itary tyranny,” martial law, &c., and need
no further notice.
The Peoria meeting has done the cause of
truth a favor by discarding the mask hereto
fore worn, end boldly avowing that the Dem
ocratic party is in favor jjf peace on any
terms, even a disunion peace. .The meeting
declared for, Ist, The doctrine of “State
Sovereignty”; 2d, Denied the right of the
General Government to coerce a seceded or
rebel “Slate,” which includes tbe right of
Secession; 3d, An immediate armistice and
withdrawal of our armies from the soil of
seceded States and fleets from rebel ports;
4tb, Tht. convening ol a Convention to make
peace on the best terms tbe rebels are will
ing to offer; sth, Acknowledgement of the
icdependence of the “ Confederates,” as it
is declared to he unconstitutional to attempt
to “subdue” them or bring them back Into
the Union by lorcc.
On these terms the Peoria Convention avow
their belief that peace can at once bi
made. We hare no doubt of it, and the
question to tc voted on this tall is exactly
whether peace shall be made on these condi*
tions, or whether the war shall proceed until
the rebels submit to the Constitution and the
laws. Wearethuaplalnlynotlfiedoftheterms
which the “democracj” Intend to offer to
the rebds if they are entrusted by the peo
ple with the power. For the sake of nuking
peace with the rebels, they are willing to sun
render the revolted States, to give up the
principle of National Sovereignty, to subor
didate National to State Sovereignty; and to
dissolve the American Republic into thirty
tlx independent States or nations. The se
cession dogmas ol Calhoun and Qayne arc
substituted for the national doctrines of Dan
id Webster and Geo. Jackson. 01 this
feast Democrats are now invited to partake!
But the platform laid down br the Conven
tion is a logical necessity of a party whose
cry ia “peace at any price.” Only oue ot
two positions can bo taken: First, to pro- |
cccd with the war, emplojiog all means for
the subjugation of the rebellion, ■ permitted
by civilized warltrc. Second, to make peace
on whatever terms the rebels will accept,
and as an acknowledgement of their Indepen
dence Is their minimum condition, Übecomes
necessary ior the “Democracy" to concede
the dogma of “State Sovereignty," and deny
National Sovereignty.
If the States are “sovereign," there'can be
no such thing as National sovereignty. Two
sovereignties cannot cover the same terri
tory at tbe same time. If State authority is
paramount to Federal, then the Constitution
is not tbe “supreme law," and the acta of
Congress cannot be enforced, and maybe
disregarded and nullified at the pleasure of
the States, and our American Republic is an
idle phantom in the brain of “Abolitionism.”
To this complexion has the proud Democra
cy come at last I The shrine of Gen. Jack
son is cast down, and Calhoun’s is worship
ped inetead thereof. * ‘ . .
To hold as a certain dass.of “Democrats"
do, that tbe to be squelched
by force of arms, and at the same time op
pose measures of military necessity to that
cod, U a position wholy untenable. The
managers of thcPeoria convention said that
no such ground as that could be held daring
a Presidential canvass. The speakers de
nounced War Democrats as worse than Abo
litionists, and read them oat of tbe “party."
A man to be consistent, must take one side
or the other of the great issue. If he Is for
State soverelgbty he Is on the side of the
rebels; If for National sovereignty, he Ison
tbe side ol the Union, and most advocate the
adoption of all measures that will strength*
tn the Unlqn cause, and weaken that of its
enemy. The great problem for the Chicago
convention to solve, will be, to straddle the
fence and retain the support of the Union
and Disunion “Democrats,” Bat we be*
Here that it is not in the wit or wisdom of
man to do it. •We believe that the disunion
peace doctrines enunciated by the Peoria
convention will prevail, though it may be
partially disguised and concealed irotn the
simple minded, in forked tongue language.
TOE N ATIONAL DEBT.
Onr home tories, no one of whom holds a
dollar of the national debt,’except as he is
compelled to take it in the form of green
backs, pretend to he sadly afllicted for fear
It will not he paid. In the mournful Jeremi
ads of these *• decoy ducks” of Jeff Davis
onr debt Is to all other debts as the Egyp-
tian pyramids to a mole bill. What are the
facts?* Supposing the war to continue till
January I.ISGO, at the present rate of expen
diture,'our debt will be twenty-six hundred
millions of dollars. The total amount of
our property will be twenty-six thousand
millions of dollars, or twenty-six billions.
In other words we will owe ten per cent of
what wc shall then be worth, and own the
debt ourselves. Shall we repudiate because
we owe one tenth as much as we are worth,
and that to the members of our own family ?
In 1616, onr national debt, caused by the
war of 1812, was one hundred and twenty
seven millions of dollars. Onr property was
worth eighteen hundred millions. '• Onr debt
was seven and seven one-hundredths per
cent ol onr property, or not lor fir m the
present ratio of onr debt to the national
wealth. We paid that debt almost without
knowing it, as the ox bore tbe burden of
tbe fly's weight Our present debt is no
larger to-day. and will be let>s than three
per cent larger in iB6O. Even ifonrwarcon
tinnes at an increased rate ot expense, In the
ratio of Its past increase, until 1870, onr debt
will be bot sixteen and two-thirds per cent
ol onr wealth, while tbe nation*! debt of
Great Britain, In 1861, was forty-one and
fourteen one-hundredths per cent of her
property, or more than three times what
cars will be six years bonce. Can we not
pay to sustain onr Government one-third as
much as England -paid to overthrow Napo
leon?
The truth is, there is wholesale ignorance
as well as malicious misrepresentation in
the “Democratic 11 party/relative to the
effect oi s national debt. So £ar from a debt
weakening a government. It, If. properly
managed, strengthens U raslly. Great Bri
tain, France, Austria and Bnasia could not
hold together for any length of time bat for
the people being bound to their government
as creditors, as holders of its debts, and
therefore Intcreetcdin its ircllare. Would
the South have rebelled If the two thousand
millions they had invested in slaves had been
invested In Government ■ stocks, and the
slaves had been, hired laborers ? . At the end
of the war we shall have Invested In the Gov*
ernment an amount equal to whatai its com
mencement we had Invested In slavery. it
was because the wealth of the people at the
South was all in slaves and none of it In
Government stocks, that slavery.became
stronger than the Government, for where ore
our pockets there are our affections. “Where
thy treasure is, there will thine heart be also. 11
Those whose treasure was in slaves stood
ready to fight for slavery ' against the Gov
ernment, Those who freely Invest In Five
twenties or Seven-thirties will defend the
Government against slavery.
There never was a greater blander com
mitted than when, under the gnidmcc of
the Democratic parly controlled by a South
ern element which was always for “eecee
,lon 11 at heart, we permitted the debtof 1810
to bo paid off. Every dollar of it paid lea

This sort of “war paper* 1 authority most

much of a “ war paper 11 as the Chicago Times.
The Aigu*m.ud Adas is a more violent Cop

lerence between the World and tbe E-quirer
is tbat the former is an open advocate of a
disunion peace, and the latter a Jesuitical ad
vocate of the same thing. They are equally
hostile to the Administration and the farther
prosecution of the war for the subjugation
of tbe rebellion.
A Reasoa for Cowardice,
A “ Pennsylvanian” writes a long letter to
the New York T iltune explaining the reason
of the cowardly conduct of the people of the
border comities of that State in not defend
ing their property against the rebel raiders.
He offers this justification;
“The people of these counties are mostly
agriculturists—exemplary and peaceable
fearing God and loving work—pursuing the
avocations of honest industry. So entirely
at variance with their habits and tastes U
fighting, with or without murderous weapons,
that the militia system in Pendsylvanla has
long since been disbonded as a disreputable
superfluity. ..The last that was seen of it woe an
occasionalmuster* of men armed with
brooms and comttalk*. to the infinite mcrlmcnt
of grave citizens ana excited urchins! Yea,
so utterly bad the entire system of deadly
strife, called war, fallen into disrepute in
Pennsylvania, that the fathers bad begun to
teach it to their sons that about the meanest,
dirtiest business in which they can engage
ie to fight! Their mission, they gradually bad
schooled themselves to believe, was not to
kill and destroy, but to plant and build, to
buy and sell/ erect churches and school*
houses, and extend the empire of knowledge
and civilization.
I grant you,these Southern devils in human
shape flghWwcll, bum well, steal well, and
perform the entire bidding of their master
n most approved style I To such fiendish
ness they nave been educated and given over
to the “strong delusion” that this is the
very acme of social and national refinement t
A donkey can bent mo at kickingout of sight
—and a stiff necked ox will butt me to death
In a second—but are the donkey and the ox,
therefore, nay superiors ? When this is es
tablished, then may our Pennsylvania farm
ers admit the superiority of the Dixie devils
—but sot before.
The Ttibufir, commenting on the above
reasons for not fighting, observes that “if
those clients are, ou Christian principle*, so
weak and nenresistant as he represents
them, then they should obey the scriptural
Injunction to lt UJoe joyfully the rpolling of
thdr gcods,” and not allow a city like Cham
bezsbnrg to be taken without a shot and de
stroyed by two hundred rebels, and then ask
other people tohelp to make np their loss
If there be any good reason assigned by our
correspondent for the Pennsylvanians’ failure
to arm or drill their militia, In view ot their
peculiar exposure to rebel raids, then out
readers have the benefit of it.
Saw* Dledary’s Opinion ot HlcGlcllan.
It is quite evident, that the out-and-out
Peace Copperheads, in the State of Ohio, are
In the ascendency, and the following from
the Crftii reflects the views of the Demo-
tic parly of Ohio much better thm does the
/Cain Dtakv or the Stat'xnuin :
“It is well known that General McClellan
has not one spark of pretentions to the Pre
sidency except what fie bos xnide out of this
war. under Mr. Lincoln. He never held a
civil office in his life, and was nnkoown to
the public when Governor Dcnt.ison brought
him forward as a' military man. Yet,
in three years, as a mere soldier, he
rises to the demands of the Presidency,
to htfid a party which Is for peacs~
a position requiring a statesman of
enlarged views and a statesman’s experi
ence.. H we arc to plunge Into Intermina
ble wars, each section or portion following
Its military leader, as In Mexico or South
America, then McClellan might bo proposed
with some more show of consistency, but as
it Is. It would be the utter annihilation of
all constitutional politics and the wiping
onto! flic Democratic organization. And
for what? That a few men who have got
hie ear may get foreign missions and home
positions, afthe expense of the peace of the
conntry and the lives of their constituents.
This is paying too dear for such whistles,
and for one we protest against It in behalf of
onr bleeding, ruined and distracted country.
If peace wifi not preserve orderand preserve
civil society, war will not, and wc arc a lost
people anyhow.”

Blcbmond Papers tc* 30th ult.-»TVhat
they bay or the Northern Raid,
From the Richmond Examiner July 30.
Once more General Early crosses the Poto
mac with his tndlant corps of veterans.
This time there is, in all probability, no force
In his front which can make him even pause.
The rich voile)s of Pennsylvania, with their
nohle herds and harvests, lie open before
him, and we may dad Washington and Balti
more more' nnenarded than ever. General
Early has proved himself an active, bold and
prudent leader, although some think he did
not make fall use of some opportunities
which presented themselves on his last expe
dition. He did, however, create a most use
ful diversion, and compelled Orantto weaken
bis army materially before Petersburg. He
inflicted on the enemy one blopdy defeat at
the Monocacy, another at Kernsto *n, a t bird
on the Shenandoah, traversed at his will the
length and breadth ot Maryland, and laid Us
'towns under contribution.
If Early bad been two days more early, he
would have marched into .Washington, and
made hta name as illustrious as that o!
“ stonewall” Jackson. As it was, he at
Jcaat threw that Infernal den Into pitiable
consternation, reconnoltered the boasted de
‘femes of the city, and perhaps xmde sure of
his blow for the next time. The moral effect
of this repeated swooping down of a Coalod
crato army on the fat pasturage and Hell-fill-"
ed barns of the enemy must be extremely
fine; It teaches them that the sword of war
Is double edeed, and cuts both ways; that
they canoot eo on forever organising plan
f denog raids quite at their ease; that barns
can be emptied and cattle driven off on the
north sloe of the Potomac aa well as on the
! south side. This style of making war is not
• to onr taste; It Is no Invention of ours; but
• u our enemy wUI have It so lei him take his
• obsrootlt, and much good m»y it do him.

Saturday Evening, July SO. ISdl.
On the bloody field In front of where I am
writing one of the most desperate and hotly
contested battles has jnst closed that our
war has witnessed, acd It has been the scene
of some ol the most heroic deeds of valor
and daring.
All night onr troops were massed In rear
of our rifle pits, and about 3 a. m. the 2d di
vision, 9th corps, took position exactlv in
front of (be fort and in rear of our pits. This
vraa the hour the fort was to be blown up,
but there was the usual unavoidable delay,
and it was 4:50 o, m. when the ground trem
bled around us, and the fort, with Its valuable
artillery and magazine and Ailed-with rebel
troops, were all blown to atoms. The con
cussion was severe, and it seemed and felt
very much like an earthquake. The moment
the fort was blown up the air for half a mile
aronnd was filled with dust and broken frag
ments of the woodworks of the parapets and
artillery caissons. &c. Ascene followed that
no pen can describe. Every officer and man
rushed, cheering and yelling over the rifle
pits and the plain in front ol onr works. No
regimental organization was preserved, and
the men that could run the fastest mixed in
with other regiments, and all went pell mell

face where the fort was lately existing. The

unteers were about the first to enter In a
body. Their colors were planted on the par
apets of the farther side of the fort amid the
hurrahs and cheers that even rose above the
eteinal din of musketry and roar of artillery.
The centre of the hole made by the explo
sion was perhaps sixty lect below the surface
of the ground, and the sloping sides were
filled with dead rebels blown to fragments,
and the sight was truly horrid to behold.
Rushing down the sides, our troops would
unearth bodies of rebels, many of .them
smothered to death in the dirt. A wide
trench or ** sap ” led to the rear of the fort,
and from that andtwo others diverging trom

Ochling much, for they seemed to fear tbit
each man had a powder magazine in bis
trowscre, from the noise the advancing col
umn made. About lortv pieces of artillery
opened on this point ana double that num
ber of rebel guns, and the roar seemed to re
mind us all of the bombardment ot Freder
icksburg. Our troops drove everything out
of the trenches beyond the fort and took pos
session with smiling faces. We then found
that a fort just South ol us had trenches run
ning parallel with these, and a rebel “sap to
the right was filled with “ Johnnies.” and in
1 a little ravine or valley In front they lay as
thick as *' leaves In Valambrosa ”
We are surrounded on every side but the
rear, and yet onr troops could be hardly kept
back; they wanted to press on. 1 never saw*
so much impatience to advance.. Soon the
order came for the oth and 11th NewHamp
shire volunteers, the 17th Vermont and Slst
Maine to charge. Before they could be got
together ready, the 31st Massachusetts, or
a part ot it, charged over the works, were
met with a murderous enfilading fire, and re
treated hastily, but in good order, to the
trenches, losing their colors.
At this moment there was a yell went op
In our rear, that grew louder and louder,
until It seemed as though the whole world
bad resolved ItseU into one general squall.
We looked to the rear, and the plain back to
onr ilflc pits was as thick as drops of water

many of them displacing true courage. It

who waved our colors and finally stopped
their assault. They then charged in good
order to the right, and were there received
with a tremendous volley from the rifle pits.
They staggered under the fire, returned it,
and were then opened on by anendlaulng
fire; the column broke, and they rushed,
pax>lc stricken across to our pita; many of
their officers leading the advance to the
rear. Our pits were then filled with men of
i the 2d and od Divisions, and as foil 68 they
could be; yet these negroes came over the
parapets and over the pits, poll with
fixed bayonets. They rushed Into our pits,
many ol them tumbling in, and bayoneting

four deep. . .
Onr officers tried to stop them coming In,
but It was like stopping the tide coming In
from the ocean. The panic and confusion
that ensued can better bo imagined than des
cribed. On came the rebels In four Rues of
battle, and the negroes had hardly tumbled
into onr lines of trenches before the battle

on tbe sides of our trenches. Two big ne
groes had jumped down on my shoulders,

tried in vain to rally the men, but it was use
less until they had retreated back toward the
fort wbere the second trench Intersected the
first There a few brave officers and men
held the rebel column at bay neatly an hour,
bat oo reinforcements coming, they were at
last overpowered and surrounded, and the
retreat to the fort was very difficult. The
colon of the 17th South Carolina wore plant*
cd over the bank beside the writer, who,
with another officer, was seized by a rebel
officer.'
At that moment the rifle of a dark eon of
Africa cracked, and the rebel officer was shot
through tbo bead apd fell headlong Into the
pits. Out white officers then shouted to the
colored men, 14 Show ’em no quarter!”
‘•Remember Fort Pillow!” and the negroes,
In the very teeth of rebels as they poured
over the pits, commenced fighting, and no

passed what followed. The negro sergeants
and corporals shouted,' ‘‘Fight, boys, for dc

the’Johnnies *wltlr the bayonet, and the clat

side. They would use the butt of tbo mus

Eleven Preaaeg Seized—lmmense A*
mount of counterfeit iflonry Foaad-
All tlioPlute* Captured—Tne Whole
Cane Swot la Krona to Waiblnscon*
{From the St. Louis Democrat.!
Tbc citizens doing business in the largo
cities ot the United States have long been
embarrassed by the circulation ot immense
aaantitles of counterfeit notes, on several of
jc most important banks of the country,
and the United States Treasury, principally
of the twenty dollar Issues and ot the fllty
cent postal currency.
Thu immense quantity of the bogus cur
rency which flooded tbc country at length
drew the attention of the authorities at
Washington, and Colonel L. C. Baker, so
widely known as a skillful detective, and
who is now Chief of the National Detective
-Police, was invested with full powers to ex
amine the matter, arrest, commit, or make
such disposal of prisoners as In his Judg
ment should seem best, and also to call to
hie aid, In addition to hie own force, such
assistance as might be necessary lo any de
partment to wmch the Interest of the ser
vice might call him.
Arriving in this city on Friday last, he
was not long In obtaining such intormation
as enabled blm to moke u successful effort
by which he secured a variety ot plates in
the city of St. Louis, Indianapolis, and Xau*
too, ut all ofwhlcb places tbe business was
found to have been extensively carried on,
the larger share of It being done in this city,
wheretbe principal manufactory and ma
chinery were located.
DESCBIPTIOK OE THE PLATES.
The first plate shown us was a live dollar
plate on tbe State bank ot lowa.
The second was a three dollar plate on
the City Treasury Warrant of St. Louis.
The third seized was n two dollarplate ou
the Bunk of Rutland, Vermont.
Tbe fourth and most import mt of all tbe
plains captured was the United States twen
ty dollar greenback series, which has per*
haj b produced nearly as many bills as the
genuine plates. Tbe process of working
this note was somewhat different from the
others, as to complete the bill requires four
different plates, tbe first of which works the
whole face of tbe note except the red star
and figures two and cypher near the center
of tbe bill, but which are somewhat separa
ted from each other.
Tbe first of these plates is remarkably well
engraved, aud, with proper paper aud ink,
would produce even a finer appearance on
tbe face of the bill than the genuine plate.
The second plate on the face of the hill con
tains much less work, and is designed to fill
in, in the largo two and cypher near the
center of the bill, and also some other
smaller work. The last plate necessary to
complete the face of the note is the red star
upon the light of the bill, which is also
well executed, and is worked last, with red
ink. The face of the bill having been com
pleted, a fourth plate is used, to finish the
work on the back of the bill; after which,
If there be no defect in the press-work, or
what is usually termed “wonting off,” the
bill ia put through another process, called
tbe “sweating process,” to modify the color
of the Ink, gotten the paper, and otherwise
prepare the bill for the market
At tbe time the plates ot the twenty were
captured, the force were busily engtged la
printing, and, unfortunately, one of the
gang had to be shot before a complete arrest
could be made. They were at this time
working on the press at Indianapolis.
The fifth of the regular series of plates
wob one on tbe Pittsfield Bank, State of
New Hampshire, of tbe denomination of
two dollars, and which was well executed,
acd bad an extensive success.
The sixth and most important plate of the
lot, except the twenty and fifty dollarplates,
was that of the fifty-ccnt postal currency,
which baa been a source of so much annoy
ance. In this series only two plates were
used, one to work the face of the check aud
the other the back.
Seventh plate. This was comparatively a
new one, and was splendidly executed, and
U, perhaps, one of the most beautiful coun
terfeit plates th&t has ever been executed in
America. It is a ten dollar, new issoo, Tre is
nry plate; bad only been used to print about
thirty thousand dollars’ worth, and at the
time It was discovered was waxed over and
buried—as was supposed—ln a secure place.
For printing the back of the ten, a dilferent
plate was used, but one which was equally
well executed.
The eighth plate was of the denomination
of twenty dollars, on the Citizens’ Bank of
Louisiana, also tolerably well executed.
Plate No. 10 was of the denomination of
twenty dollars, on the Bank of New Orleans.
Plate No. twelve was a twenty dollar bill on
the State Bank of Tennessee. 'Plate No. thir
teen was of the denomination of ten dollars,
on the bank of Louisville. The fourteenth
and last plate discovered and seized was a
splendidly executed plate for printing the
new issue of fifty dollar Treasuryuotes, and
which had evidently not yet been used much.
CAPTURE OF DIES,
In addition to the wholesale capture ot
plates on tbe different banks above describ
ed, several important dies were also taken
possession of, the first of which was a twen
ty five cent die, handsomely executed and
well calculated to deceive.
THE MEN ENCAGED IN THE BUSINESS.
Probably one ot the most important of the
£ang is Louis Sleight, a resident of St. Louis,
who spends nearly all his time at Nauvoo,
who is not a “ shover” of this money, nor
even a manufacturer of It, but acts as adviser
andogent. In appearance he Is Intelligent,
gentlemanly, prepossessing and 01 superior
ability. A second member of tbe gang is
I James Vezcy, living some seven miles irom
l st. Louis, beyond the corral and race track.
I a thud member Is John Frisby, who resides
lln Nanvoo; he Is a man of property there.
A fourth, and one of the most adroit, is the
notorious Fred. Biebusb, already convicted
in this State for counterfeiting, and who was
1 pardoned out of the Missouri State prison by
the President On the very day after Ble
bueeb was pardoned he sent out and made an
I arrangement with the engraver, who got him
1 no this ten dollar United States plate, new
I which we have already described. A
I filth member of the concern is Willi im Ho-
I mer, who resides at No. 443 Broadway, St.
Louis.
coimE&roxDEifCE, rmcnASE or lumbeh,
STC.
An agent not far up the country writes for
some more of the money, and says:
“MtFsisnd Hoxeb: Our crops are looking
very well np here. W> hare succeeded In driving
the guerillas oak tod I hope to be in St. floats in
a few days, and I want to our five thousand feet
oftbat txtenty foot lumber. What will you sell it
to me fort’ //
Another on© from the country Writes to
him and ears: ,<
•» Friend Horn's: I have sold all th£ ! ?heer> and
lambs which I purchased from you thelist time I
saw tou in St. Louis. They sell well here, hut the
stock I* becoming pretty well known. Cannot
yon sell me some other kind of slock ?‘*
Another one lu Ohio writes that be is
keeping a grocery, and says: “I mad* well
on the last trade which 1 made with you,
but 1 must bare It in smaller volumes'’—
meaning that be wants some of the fifty
issue
A sixth member is from Nauvoo—John
I Broun who was arrested some months since
I and taken to the old Capitol prison and after
I some time released, hat has since been rc
arrested. Brown was one of the ‘‘sAomiv,"
and had followed it for years.
A seventh member, now in the old Capitol
prison, Is Charles Hathaway, and a * shorn-"
oxd a manufacturer. He figured principally
aa a horse and mule buyer for the Govern-
I mrnh He and Sleight would not unfre-
I queutly hay twenty thousand dollars' worth
I in a single week in Missouri, and pass them
{ oyer to tho Government, of course paying
I for them in their own money and receiving
I in return tor them money from the Govern-
I meat.
THE JOHNSTON FASIILT.
In addition to the seven members and
agents above mentioned, the family known
to the detectives os ths Johnston family were
also engated in this business. The family
live in Indianapolis. The father of the fam
ily has served two term* In the PcnltcntUry
for counterfeiting, and hts been the most ex
pert engraver in the West, At the present
time hehaa only been out of the Penitentiary
about two months. Mrs. Johnston is also
engaged as one cf the shows of the money.
! Elijah Johnston Is probably about eighteen
I years of age, is very shrewd and sharp, and
is also a show. Thomas Johnston Is also an
engraver, and, to do him justice, a very good
one. -Bob Johnston is .one of the business
I agents. Theee'parths, engaged with those
beiore mentioned, formed the gang, with the
{exception of Dr. McCarty, alias Woods, a
dentist of Indianapolis, who acted as a useful
I man among them, furnishing money and as*
| B’sUrg in printing and shoving, and also as
an agent, letter-writer and dealer in fwsnfy
|/c<v lumber. . .
I The whole gang hare been fbrwaracd to
Washington in double Irons, where Huy will
I undergo an investigation, and be sentenced
I to such punishment as the authorities may
ate fit to Indict upoa them.

Sattbjut Evantso, Aug. f.—Our receipts for the
current week show an increased fupply, not only
over the previous week, bat for several week* past.
ltha«,howev«r,been very observable that the pro*
pettion of common Cattle has been considerably
beycni-the average. For the general requirements
of the market, the large receipts ef thin steers and
cows have been beyond the demand. We cojse
qucntly note a decline of sfc V 100 Bs on common
cable curing the week. There has been a fair de
mand for good shipping cattle, for the Eastern mar
ket!. but the receipts appear to be diminishing, sofar
as extra grades of stock are concerned. Tnis is bat
a natural result, considering the extraordinary sup
ply which existed daring the months of May and
June. The demand for median CstUe daring,
the put three or lour weeks hasten almost axcla-.
tivtly confined to Government accounts: but it Is
now found that the only Government contracts in the
market, are for Steers welshing and up
wards —for this dais of stock the present require
ments of the market are about VKO head per weSfc-
There were in the yards this morning, including the

tered sals* during the day amount to 1.143 head afe
prices ranging from gi.75<3725 per ’63 Bi. Govern
ment bnyvrt have been usable to fill their required
quantities, owing to ll*e extrema poorness of the
itock. The market duel with a good demand for

Satubpat ETBanrro, Aug. 6, X.S6l.—'The receipts
durlrg the past week bare been still diminishing.
With an active demand in the principal Eastern mar*
ket* pricei bare not cnly been fairly sustained, but
we note that really good nogs hare further advansed
50c per ICG As. It appears now clearly evident either
lhat the stock of heavy Hogs in tne country u nearly
exhausted, or else that with the prospect of a good
corn crop, breeders are disposed to await therequtre
mint? of the fall trade. Boyers arc more numerous
than wllsrs. and at present quotations the market
