Mit chell und Crook.—Railroads Restored and Communications Re-cstablitlied. Washington, Oct. 10.— Tho Republican ex tra of this morning says the Government ha« received dispatchôs from Gen, Koseerans, dated Chattanooga, October Gth, yesterday, and from other officers on duty ht his head quarters. Also, official dispatches from Nash ville, all containing reports most encouraging to the National cause. The forces under Gen. Mitchell, overtook tho rebel cavalry on tho 6th iust., below Shol by ville, and a battle immediately ensued, re sulting in tho complete rout of the enemy, who did not «top for his wounded. Over one hundred of the enemy were left ou tjie field, and also a large number of wounded. Gon. Mitchell sent a force after tho flying rebels, who scattered panic stricken, tho only of escaping the great military cordon established by Gen. Rosecrans. The railroads torn up by the raiders have la'cn repaired, and tho telegraph eommuuica is re-established. Tho sacking of Shelby villa was as cowardly and disgraceful to the rebel arms of Lawrence by tho rebel Quantrcll. We had neither forces nor stores tbero beyond those of the inhabitants, many of them Secession ists, and they wero robbed and their houses lairnod. They were without protection ; houco the disgrace to the Confederates who made such ah unmilitary onslaught upon the place. jBfftgff's bombardment of Chattanooga was .a complete failure, eo far as any damage whatever being done to tho defences or to our A few women and children moauH was that gallant army. frightened, and a few dwelling were were burned. Louisville, Oct. 9.— General Crook, com mundtog a brigade of cavalry twelve miles beyond Franklin, yesterday afternoon up with a portion of Whorton's rebel cavalry, A sharp fight ensued, resulting in one hun dred and twenty-five rebels being killed and wounded, and three hundred prisoners and four cannon captured. The rebels were in full retreat and our forces in pursuit. No casualties to .the Federal, are reported. The telegraph to Chattanooga has beon working since yesterday, the railroad will be in running order to-morrow to Bridgeport. No rebel prisoners are confinod in Louis ville, except Dick McCann and thirty of his o&me men. Louisville, Oct. 9.—Onr Nashville corres pondent says that only three buildings were burned at Shelby ville by the rebels—the court house and two other houses. The town was plundered throughout, und some 1,500 pris ure reported as captured, which is con sidered doubtful. Major Lester, of the 4th Confederate Cav alry, captured Captain Smith, of General oners alry, captured Captain Smith, of General Sheridan's stuff, with 250 wagons, including 15 siltlars' wagons, «t Wald run's Bridge, »nd 587 men were captured at MoMinnville. Guerillas are reported on the Louisville road, and fears aro entertained that Gallatin will he attacked. It is reported that Belton has bean promo ted to major general in the rebel army. A report prevails in this city of an engage ment aud Federal success at Lexington, Ky„ hut the particular» cannot be produced. THE WAR IN VIRGINIA. The Cavalry Battle Between Kil patrick and Mtuart. Apprehended demonstration of the Rebele — Hill's Corps in Motion—Retreat of Oeneral Lee's Army to Richmond. Now York, Oct. 11.—Tho Washington spe cials to the Herald and Sunday Mercury stato that Gonnrq.1 Lee's army has retreated from tho Bapidan to Kiehmond. yosterday evening reports from the front represented that early in the morning one of Kilpatrick's cavalry brigades, consisting of tho Fifth Michigan, Fifth New York and Seventh Pennsylvania, and another oavalry regiment, attempted to make a recopnoisance the south side of Robertson's river^ when they wero met by a large body of Stuart's reb el cavalry. A fight ensued, continuing an hour, when our cavalry fell back upon our infantry ro servos. After another severe contest our Infantry compelled to give way, and a considera ble number of them wore captured. A detachment of our cavalry then dashed upon the enemy, retaking all the prisoners they had taken, with the exception of fifteen -^pr twenty of the infantry. Our entire forco was then pushed back by the rebels towards Culpeper, skirmishing on tho way and contesting every foot of ground. Heavy firing in tho afternoon indicated that the contest had been renewed. Our signal station on the summit of Thor oughfare mountain was nearly cut off, but fortunately the entire party, with their prop erty, escaped, It appears to be generally believed that the main body of Gen. A. P. Hill's rebel oorps has passed from tho left to tho right of pur front, pursuing an obscure route, near the Blue Ridge, intending to make a demonstra our right and rear, for the purpose of wore tion cutting our railroad communication. s Measures are preparing to give him a fit ting reception in that qu&rfor ; but should the rebel movement bo simply aaruse to cover a heavy attack on our front, wc are prepared for it, as the ground has been cleared of every thing calculated to embarrass a general and vigorous battle on our part. The advance of General Hill's corps proba bly commenced moving from Madison Court House on Thursday morning, and by this time it must be between Gaurdeine fork and Aesthanis river. It wax poeitively stated yesterday morning, that the robol cavalry and infantry wero upon the Sperrysville and Culpeper pike, ■yaw» - (?it fViday at gucrU«s were seen on Pony Mountain, tfiroe mUes soutWcst of Culpeper, and are rfepWted to have boon secretod in thç Devil'll Den, a cave in the mountain. A cTttten who waft compelled to conduct a scouting party failed to find it, and under the belief that he purposely misled our party, he has been arrested. A Fight Near ladisou Court House. Washington, Oct. H.— f A letter from the headquarters of the Army of the Potomac »ays; "For two or three days tho enemy have been concentrating a heavy force around Mad* ison Court House, and on Friday night and Saturday morning they moved out of town in a northwardly direction. "A division of infantry, a large body of cavalry, and considerable artillery, were oc casionally seen by our signalmen pushing through the openings of a forest which gen erally conceals the road. "The object of the movement could not at that time bo determined upon." Fortress Monroe, Oct 9.—The flog-of truce steamer New York returned last even ing from City Point in charge of Major John E. Mulford. The rebels do not appear to feel disposed to return our soldiers which they hold as prison ers of wav, and consequently our flag-of-truce boats have for several trips returned empty, or nearly so. The Richmond Examiner pf the 8th instant has the following; Gordonsvillb, Oct, 7.«-'•Citizens confirm the report that the enemy is falling back to Culpeper Court House. ■ me or A Cavalry Engagement—Rise of the Tennessee River. From the Richmond Enquirer. Mission Bridge, Oct. 5.—Wo opened upon Chattanooga at o$e o'clock this morning, from Lookout Mountain and other points along line, our shells oxploding In the enemy's camps as well as in the city, setting fire to one house. The enemy replied briskly from Moc casion P.oiijit to opr boiteries on I/x>kout Mountain, and foebly from the fort and case mated fort. The firing stiR continues. Mission Bridge, Oct. 6.—The Tennessee river is rising rapidly. It has swept away the lower pontoon bridge of the enemy and submerged the trestle bridge. Prisuners and doser ters confirm the capture of tho enemy's wagon train by Goneral Wheelor. Major S. P. Mitchell,.chief quartermaster of Gen. Long street's corps, died last night of diptheriu. The Situation at Chattanooga, Washington, October 9.—Lookovit Moun tain, from which Bragg endeavors to bombard Rosecrans, is eighteen hundred fee* higher than Chattanooga, threo miles distant by wagon road and less than two in a direct line. Missionary Ridge, where rebel despatches aro dated, is about one thousand feot high, three miles from Chattanooga by road, and two miles by air line. Lookout Mount«in and Missionary Ridgo nearly enoircle Chattanooga whieh lies in a basin formod by the mountain ous ranges around it. Bragg has an open railroad communication with' Romo and Atlanta, one hundred and thirty-six miles distant, whence he cati bring up the heaviest siege guns, cast at both theso points. The Etowah Shell Works are sixty miles from Chattanooga, also connected there with by railroad. Mobil*, Oct. 6. —The enemy's cavalry, about 1,500 strong,"with four guns, attacked Colonel Richardson, noar New Albany, at 11 o'oleck yesterday morning. The engage ment was chiefly an artillery ono, and lasted till five o'clock this evening. The enemy was repulsed. From Na«« It ville— Arrival of three Hundred and Eighty Prisoners. Nashville, Oct. 10, 1803—half-past 10 P. M.—Three hundred and eighty rebel prson ers, captured at McMinnville, have* arrived here. More-are expected. All is quiet on our front to-day. Telegraphic and railroad communication continue without interruption. The War Democracy—The Loaves aud Fishes. The incendiary harangueH the intrigue«, the quarrels and the reconciliations of tho Democratic party, and all a reckless scamblo for place and power. A fortnight since. Tammany Hall had no terms of 'vituperation too coaso for Mozart Hall, its Southern sym pathies and peace proclivities. A oonvention is held at Albany ; nominations are divided, a truce patched up, aud Fernando Wood and Elijah Purdy, over a common ticket are tho best of friends. .The opposing principles which sundered them have disappeared, and the tri fling issues of peace and war as nothing in comparison, with the danger of a spirit ticket. To save appearances, Tammany inserted in the resolutions oue which pledged, tho party to support the Government " in tho use of all legitimate means " to suppress tho rebellion. Yet, within a week, the official organ of Mo zart dared boldly to assert that " this is not a declaration in favor of tho war," though ** it apparently favors it." It is " a slight decep tion practiced upon the pooplo " while it is " in fact su8oeptible of any construction the reader may choose to give it." In short "the sentiment of the Convention decidedly inclinod to peace. Having disposed of a mechanical difficulty aud screened themselves from the charge of treason, there is nofwfcher occasion for this worthless saving clause to be paraded before the people. Let the canvass proceed upon a peace basis, openly and without dis guise." If this shameless cozening can bo openly avowed in New York whei* Tammany Hall is still a power, without spliting the party, what be expected her® in Pennsylvania, whero the harmony of tho organizat ion has been dis turbed by no such threatened divisions ? The peaee wing of the party early obtained the ætery here and the war like applications of those who thought that rebellion should bo put down with the strong hand havo been promptly smotherod. The Democracy pre sents an unbroken front and directs its un divided energies against the central depötism of a «•mi with tion war was was was If it of at Washington, secretly hoping for rebel vic tories tlttit may widen its path to the polls. HOW WAR DEMOCRATS DECEIVE THEMSELVES. in ron How can a war Democrat allow tbelxmdaof party fealty thus to weigh upon till he abdi (latea his owu judgmeqj, and hocomes the ox or the ass of his leaders, to he tyiught, sold and delivered? Some may honestly deceive tliomsolvee with the thought that the Admin istration has mismanaged the war for politi cal purposes, and that it could bo prosecuted with more energy if the Democracy wero in power. Arguments such as this we have heard from men whose sincerity we would not dare to doubt, yet how this object is to be ac complished by supporting those whose pro gramme is " to put down the Government we have never been able to learn. It can hardly he asserted that the war would be car ried on more vigorously by a revolutionary attempt to eject Mr. Lincoln from power, and short of this his administration aud his policy must continue until March 1805. While he remains in power, additional vigor in military operations is not to he expected by encouraging those who discourage volunteer ing and openly denounce the draft, who use every art to dostruy tho confidence of the peo ple in their rulers, who procluim their inten tion to out off the supplios; who declare that the war cannot bo ended with .the sword, and who propose State Convention for the purpose of placing tho comuu>u»voalt,h in declared hos tility to tho General Government. If the war Democrat can thus deceive himself, tho rebels arc not so blind. Looking on at our political contentions with the eager watchfulness of de the success of the Öomocra spair, they seo, in tic Party, their last hope ofijohieving inde pendence, and they are .willing to risk another Gettysburg, in the hope that the unchecked ravage of bur fertile valleys may aid their Democratic allies to carry the State. RESPONSIBU5 FOIt THE WAR ? Other War Democrats cannot avert their at tention from the orgroof Abolitionistn,' and lotte their horror of rebellion in thoir detesta tion for the "freedom shriokers" who caused it! They forget that the republican party of 1800 had expressly abandoned the radical po sitions assumed in 1856, and by the .Chicago platform had guaranteed the South against all interference with slavery where it existed. That Mr. Lincoln had repeatedly declared M t the Constitution protected slavory as a te institution, and that tho South was on. titled to the efficient enforcement of tho Fugi tive Slave Law. That Mr. Vioe President Stephens, in January, 1861, in the Georgia Convention, bent on secession, vainly asked the revolutionary party to declare, right has thç North assailed ? What interest of the South has been invaded? What justness has been denied ? and what claim bounded justness And right has been withheld ? That the future of the South was as secure as tho past, holding, es it did, entire control over the Legislature and Judicial branches of the who is at \Vhat Government, That the ** Crittenden Compromise " flOflld readily have been adopted had it not been killed by Southern members, determined on separation. That, even after tho departure of the Southern members, when the Rcpubh held both branches of Congress, they on cans deavored to win back the South and preserve the Union, even at tho sacrifice of their dis tinctive principles. Not only did they pass, by their requisite two-Dhirds vot#, Mr. Cor wins resolution amending the Constitution so to perpotuate slavery in the slave States, but they abandoned the exclusion of slavory but they abandoned the exclusion of slavory from-the Territories. Colorado, Nevada and Dacotah were organized : and, so anxious they to prevent the threatened strife, that, not content with omitting any prohibi tion of slavery therein, the acts expressly pro vided that " no law shall be passed impairing tho rights of private property ; nor shall any discrimination be made in taxing different kinds of property, but all property subject to taxation shall be taxed in proportion to the value of tho property." Thus iu all tho ter ritory unddF control of the Government, the South was free to carry its slaves, and their safety from hostilo legislation was secured as long as the Territorial condition should re main. " Here," says the Raleigh (N. C.) Standard of July 31st, 1803, " teas a settle ment of the question of the Territories made by Rejntblican Congress which gave to the South uU that up to the time of the Charleston Con vention she had ever asked, and far more than she could hope to gain, in any Went by seces in in all a it is the the dis is dis The the bo been pre un sroi. Read by tho light of subsequent events, this abandonment of declared political principles to propitiate armed rebellion is almost humili ating, and it merely odds another instance of the long habituated dooility with which the North was accustomed to kneel when the South cracked her whip. That some ardent spirits rebelled at thus being mado to cat and digest the hard planks of tho Chicago platform natural. AVo took oaro of them aud they could do no harm ; but nothing could restrain tho chivalry, fired with the idea of a mighty empire around the Gulf, based upon slavery and cotton, drawing fabulous wealth from tho mines of Mexico, and controlling the changes of the word with their flosculont king. Yet tho expressions of powerless discontent from a few disappointed " aholionists ' are the Adminis ex. gravely quoted to throw upon tr&tion tho responsibility of this causeless hellion in dofianco of the records of Congress and in violation of the plainest truth of his tory. Can devices so transparent imposo honest minds ? re-. on THE " WAR FOR TUE NIGGER. But perhaps the argument which has serv ed most affectively to weaken the loyalty of tho War Democracy is, that the war has been diverted from its original object of a war for the Union, and that " Abolition" tendencies have wantonly and wilfully converted it into a "war for the Negro," This is a cry so read ily raised, and which tells so strongly upon the prejudices of a largo portion of lation,* that it has answered vts purpose of blinding vast numbers of honest men to true issues between tho Union party and the Opposition. They fail to recognize that, for eighteen months, the war was carried on I il- with the MbJerest regard for the " peculiar institution ;" that we fought with gloves hopes of winning back our erring breth of the South, as much by kind considera tion for those who might retain Union senti ments, aa by bard blows for those in arms to overthrow the Government. The Adminis tration stood firm against the pressure of the radical wing of the Republicans as long as there appeared a hope that conducting th« war in a conciliatory manner would prove the shortest roacfto poace. When events demonstrirtiMi that this hope was aa a fallacy and that the rebellion could only be suppressed by striking at thgt which was its most efficient support, »different poli was adopted : but even then a last effort was made to avoid what was recognized as a military necessity, and, by proclamation, a notice of a hundred days was given of the impending change. The recently published correspondence between dhe President and Fernando Wood shows that, even during this period, the Adminstration was ready for any reasonable accommodation, and that a full amnesty and admission to Congressional rep resentation would have welcomed to repent ance the traitors who had aimed a deadly blow, at the nations life. Surely with this evidence before him, no candid man can ac cuse the Government of adopting its emanci pation policy as an end and not as -a means. If indoed the measure requirotLjustffication, it is to be found in thermovementnow rapidly acquiring consistence in the South, to arm Br slaves* and thus recruit their wasted ranks. • But even admitting the worst imputations which have been put forward, it may reason ably be asked how a man who honestly de sires the suppression of the rebellion can allow his hatred of abolition to lead him to support Peace Democracy? The policy of the Admin istration has been deliberately adopted and proclaimed to the world. It is too late to alter that policy without giving up tho con test. On such a pretext therefore, to side with thos^ who oppose a further prosecution of the struggle for national existence, and who openly declare their intention to vote against further supplies of men and money for this "abolition war," is simply to decide that slavery is more precious than Union, and that a dissolution which iHrelT'Icavcr slavery triumphant is preferable to a Union without slavery. Those who faticy that they can con tribute to change the conduct of the war by adhoreing to a party pledged against the war, are the victims of the wildest hallucination that ever misled honorable men. on est for in ron MARRIED.
