Friday's Dispatches.
Dispatches from tho vicinity of Washing
ton stato that the rebels have retreated from
Vienna. It in the opinion tlmf. they will
make a stand at M:uiuss:i,h, whither Gen.
McDowell's command are piiNhing. The
rebels had a largo force ut I'airfax, and the
retreat will have a very damaging c fleet on
the force nt Manassas. The National (mops
entirely destroyed Gcrniantnwit by fire, in
the belief that shots were fired on them
from tho houses. Gen. McDowell has sent
the soldiers guilty of the act to Alexandria,
under gnard, and promises to shoot the first
man who repeals tho offense. Hume of the
property destroyed belonged to 1'nioii men.
A big battle will occur at Manassas, unless
the right wing of McDowell's army cuts otV
tho retreat of Johnston from Winchester to
Manassas, in which case tho latter w ill be
completely surrounded. A large number of
trophies from the South Carolina regiments
have, been taken from Fairfax to Washing
ton. Ccnlrovillo is occupied by !,0(M Na
tional troops. Tho Ohio and Indiana troops
ore in that place, which in eight miles from
Manassas. The rebels had extensive en
trenchments at this point, but evacuated and
run on the approach of tho Federal lorces.
It is said that a severe skirmish lias occur
red below Ceiitorville, several boint; killed
on each side.
Tho news from Western Virginia contin
ues to be good. Gen Hill pursued the rem
nant of Garnet t 'a rebel army to within a few
miles of Roinney, but failed to overtake
them. Gen. Mcl'lellan then ordered him back
to Oakland. Gen. Johnson is said to have
sent 2000 men to their relief at llmnm y.aml
all aro supposed to be concentrating and at
tempting to reorganize their scattered frag
ments of tho rebels there. Gen. Morris got
a batch more of their wagons in returning
from tho Cheat Diver battle field. It is said
that only a dozen wagons of their whole
train escaped. Prisoners are stiil being
brought in at Laurel Hill. Twenty-five
were taken Wednesday and a number more
on Thursday. Their wounded continue to
bo found in the houses through the country.
A dispatch from Jefferson City, Mo,, re
ports a skirmish between McNeil's and a
party of rebels, at 9 o'clock Wednesday, in
eight of Fulton on tho Jefferson City road,
in which eleven of the Federal troops were
wounded, two mortally; one rebel killed and
a largo number wounded. The rebels were
dispersed. Col. McNeil was in Fulton a
waiting re-enforcements. Gen. Harris' men
were unmanageable, and lied by every road
leading out of town. About 700 of tho reb
els were mounted. The camp at Wand
Springs is supposed to be broken up. On
ly tho advanced guard of our troops were
iu tho engagement, and were fired on from
an ambush. Tho rebels then lied, and some
of them were seen uftcrward quietly work
ing in their fields, as if nothing happened.
Saturday's Dispatches.
Wo have exciting news from Kanawha
Talley, tho particulars of which will be
found in our local columns.
There waB a report iu Washington on Fri
day, that Manassas had been taken by our
forces, but is undoubtedly premature. The
various branches of our army moved for
ward toward Manasses, and ivcoimoisanccs
were made of the enemy's works, which are
very strong, and are defended by a force at
least us large as ours. The oll'n-iul dispatch
from Gen. McDowell states that six wore
killed, fivo mortally and ttventy-oue slightly
wounded, in tho battle at Hull Run. it,
tho attack upon tho batteries at Hull Run
had failed on Thursday afternoon, General
was sent to out-Hank them. Noth-1
ing is yet beard from tho expedition of this
brigade, which has been assigned the post
of honor in tho beginning of this p eat bat
tle. It is thought that Hcauregard's column
at Manasses has been ro-inforcod by John
aon'a command, which lied from Gen. Fat
tcrson's forces. The killed and wounded
Bull Run. mostly belonged to the Massachu
setts tirst and the New York Twelfth.
Gen. McClollan telegraphs under date
Friday, that tho Second Kentucky defeated
and routed six hundred of Wise's men
Cabcl county; on Tuesday. (This refers
tho Barboursvilto affair.)
"Wo have nothing of particular interest
irom Misbouri. Gen. Lyon is reported to
moving to-warda the Arkansas border, w
a force. of ton to fifteen thousand. McCul
loch and Jackson have retreated across
Arkansas lino, for tho purpose of drilling
their troops. Their avaiblu force is placed
at 17,500, including the rebel fcrces of
Boutheru Conthievescy.

Federal troops numbered l.",000. The battle
was one of the severest ever fought on
this continent. I p to two o clock our
troops bad driven the enemy a distance of
t wn miles. As they fell back from ono posi
tion it was only to another e.pinlly strong,
and at every point fresh reinforcements
were poured in, without limit as to numbers.
Tlmre tan be no doubt that their forces u us

were terribly cut up. While drawn up to

Tuesday's Dispatches.
The dispatches of to-day change the bril
liant victory of the Grand Army into a sad
reverse. Our troops, after taking three bal
leries and gaining ulnm-it an impregnable
position at Dull I; Mil, without any I cully np
parenf cause made a hasty re I rent on Alex
andria and Washington. Our loan is dread
ful said to be over .'JOiiO. During the re
treat, Gen. McDowell endeavored to make
a stand both at Ceiitorville and Fairfax, but
our troops w ere unmanageable. The road
from Hull Hun was strewn wilh knapsacks,
arms, ,vc. Some of the troops threw away
their guns and appurtenances (lie better to
faciliate their travel. Gen. McDowell was
in tho rear of the retreat, exerting himself
to rally his men, but only with partial cfleel.
The latter part of the tinny, it is said, made
their retreat in order. The rebels bad a
force of about .'.10,000, and it is intimated
that they w ere taking steps to surround our
troops, which created tho stampede. It
seems, however, that the retrctreal was
brought ahoul by a panic arising among the
teamster and civillians accompanying the
army, whose precipitate llight communicat
ed an alarm to some of the troops, and from
them to others, until the entire torco was
uncontiolablc. Wo hope this liiv.t great
failure may have tho elVect of silencing those
correspondents, whoso constant abuse forc
ed tho Government to allow forward move
ments to bo made against a well fortified
force of twice its numbers. This is un
doubtedly the cause of the great disaster.
l.ATl'H. Dispatches received just before
going to press rtate that only about 1100 were
killed in the Hull Hun allair. The number
will probably lie much reduced yet. That
our troops retreato I is true, but the disor
der and confusion first reported lacks con
siderable of being true.

In answer to the first, the Democratic
State Central Committee have called a par

on a platform not only partian in its char

who desires to nee the Government sustain

they love the Fnion, but party more, and re

In answer to the second, the Republican

Jhqjr-Tho vigorous action of Congress
giving tho Government greater mean of
self preservation than it even askod slio'd
silenco tho treasonablo drivel of the tory
sheets throughout Ohio. Those paper
have not dared to come out and boldly ex
press the sympathy they have all along bad
with the Southern rebellion, but have sneak
ed behind cover of whining innuendoes, in
sinuating their treason by a hypocritical pre
tense of being for tho Fnion on ono hand
while on the other denouncing the I'rcsi
dent for adopting the only coin no that could
possibly rave it. History records the fact
lint n tory parly figured conspicuously, du
ing tho revolution, by giving aid nnd com
fort to tho enemies of a free government;
and history will again record the fact that
tho samo .putty had not ceased to exist up
to the time of the first great struggle for
tho maintenance of that government. In
other words the lories of lo-day are "chips
of that same old block" of '7ii. Now, ns
then, they aro the opponents of free govern
ment, and an administration constitutionally
chosen by a free people.
Loyalty of the Reserve.
We have seen it slate I in several Demo
cratic papers that but one company from
Ashtabula county the hot bed of Aboli
tionism has enlisted in the service of their
country, and that they are nearly nil Demo
crats. Now the truth is, A- hta'u!:i county
is represented by four companies ; one of
artillery and three of infantry. The first
gnu filed on tho rebels at l'hilippi,, was by
the Ashlabula artillery company, which went
forward immediately at, the Governor's or
der. Ah to tho poli'ii :il complexion of Ihese
companies, in view of the charge that the
Republicans had stayed at home, the editor
of the ,S'"i has l iken some pains to ex
amine the muster rolls, nnd says that neither
Douglas nor Hreekinridge gol on an average
four voles to the company, of tho entire
number enlisted. The number of Democrats
iu the four companies is thiiteen. In con
clusion, the Sentinel savs : Wo have no
disposition to make invidious comparisons
of tlto patriotism of parties in this respect;
but since the subject is opened, it is but
right to state I ho facts, and but for the per
sistent lying of those papers, they need not
have been slated.
That's So.
The Cincinnati Kii'nirer, Dayton Empire,
Ohio Sitfisnnni, and several other kindred
sheets are anxious to have a National Con
vention called, to amend the Cnu-slitiitinii to
settle our little difficulties. Who would at
tend il? The loyal Stales are fully repre
sented in Congress. They can do there nil
that loyal men should do. F.ighl of the
Slates are controlled or subjugated by rebels
in arms against the ( lovernment. Are these
traitors to be allowed to come into a Nation
al Convention (nailer the Constitution ? Cer
tainly no one who proposes such a (hing
can regard their treason us a crime. Hut it
is not strange thai they w ho supported an"
Administration when it was made up of the
worst of these traitors, should now desire
to bring them into a Convention to alter our
fundamental law. And any one w ho is ca
pable of proposing that traitors in arms shall
come into our deliberate assemblies with
tho highest rights of loyal citizens, would
only be too glad too see them restored to
power iu the Government, wilh their stolen
arms iu Ihcir hands.
Government Arms.
It is ascertained from official sources that
2aO,W)0 stand of arms have already been
issued, leaving half that; number at
least still on hand, with others being con
stantly manufactured. These arms are ad
ditional to those furnished by the State au
thorities. None have thus far been order
ed from abroad through the Ordnance
Hureau. Hence the recent importation
must be on State or private account. Dea
lers and inventor- are daily offering to sup
ply the Government, w hich, however, pre
fers its own patterns of uniformity. There
is no lack of facilities, it will thus be seen,
for arming all the troops that may be called
into the field. There is abundance of ord
nance stores, and other implements of warfare.
Where's Johnson?
Last fall we Democrats fought with all
our vigor the extreme parties prediilihg a
bad state of allairs if the sectionalism of
cither North or South prevailed. We war
red both Hreekinridgeism wilh iU lireeafing
proclivities and l.iiicoluisni with its irre
pressible dogmas. -7V('.'i A,lrertiser.
AVill the -I Ircrli'xiT inform its readers of
the whereabout of Johnson, tbo identical
individual who ran on the ticket with Doug
las for tho Vice I 'residency? Will it tell
them what ollice he bolls in the S.ui'horn
Conthicvcracy, and w hat he did iu further
ing the ends of Georgia's rebellion. The
Atlrcrt .'' labored bard for the election of
Douglas sud Johnson, and il they had been
successful. Johnson who has declared iu
every speech since the inauguration of the
so-called Southern Confederacy that the ex
periment of self-government has proved a
failure--would now have been Frcsident of
these Cuited States. Then Hreckiuridge's
doctrice of slavery extension would have
been carried out to the very letter, and be
fore the expiration of another four years
i very flee state in the Fnion would have
bad to bow to the God of slavcrv.
Sound Democratic Doctrine.

country from impending distruction.
Now it is evident to any man w ho at all
rellects on the present crisis, that all former
paUlical issues must for the present bo
laid aside, must for a time at least be merged
in more important considerations, and the
energies of tho w hole people of the Stato
must be bent to the support and prescrva
of the General Government. If, then, wo

The Democratic Call.
County organ ialion throughout theSUto
are choosing ami getting ready to choose,
delegate to tho State Democratic Conven
tion which i cnlled to meet at Columbus, on
the 7th of August. At the meeting of the
Slate Central Committee, which met to make
tho "Cull," among other resolutions the fol
lowing was adopted :
ltrtuilre.il, further, That all the electors of
tho Slate of Ohio, who aro in favor of pcr
pntnatiiig the principles upon which onr
I'nion was founded, mid ne convinced
that the present Stato and National Adinin

the Government iu its present critical con
dition, as well nsall who arc opposed to the
groas c.xtiavagance and corruption now so
alarmingly prevalent in public all'.iits, be
earnestly invited to unito with the Democ
racy iu this hour of our country's peril, and
thus redeem the Slate mid place its admin
istration in competent banda.
Tim Cleveland I'itin'l'iihr, a warm sup
porter of Douglas, last fall, thus speaks of
tho " ('all," and the disposition to overthrow
tho Government if needs bo to keep step to
party music :
Now wo unhesitatingly assert that, the

simply because they arc political opponents,
nor will wo sustain our own partisans in

We predict that the first work of the con

black lines around thai resolution, and w rile
across the face of it, " Expunged by order

The Sandusky Democrat, published at
Fremont, eonnueiit.s on the above as follow s:
The remarks of the I'lniiucalfr accord
exactly with our views. Tics' is no time for
the passage of partisan resolutions giving
aid and comfort to the rebels, while the con
stitutional Government is engaged in a tre
mendous struggle to put down a gigantic re
bellion. e can not perceive that Hie main
tenance of the Democratic organization ic
iptires any such net of disloyalty. "If it does
we had better "let it slide." If may do for

resolutions like the above, but wo prote.-,t
against their doing it in llio name of the De

try, not a n. inst il, and a good evidence, of
this is liie tact that al least loll, DUO itetuo-
crals have taken up aims to defend tho Gov

not forgotten, not will the forget, the dying
words of Doiiglaa, urging them to nland by

is that the present admiiiislialion has been

Capital front capture and pillage, and restor

home and abroad. 1 1 has organized, equip
ped and put into t ie field a splendid volun
teer army of 310,000 men. It has already
paralyzed the rebellion and revived the
hopes of Fnion men everywhere. We fail
to see iu these acts proofs, of the " incompe

triotism of that man may well bo ipiestion

a tremendous crisis of the country, endeav

The Capital City Juict, a paper that sup
ported Hreekinridge for the Presidency,

and worse than Southern rebels.
