Resolved, By the Democracy of the fiifteenth Congressional District of Ohio, in Convention assembled, that we endorse and adopt the principles set forth in the series of resolutions adopted by the Demo cratic State Convention atJColumbus, J uly 4th, 18G2. Revived, That the only object of the Democratic party is the restoration of the Union as it was and the preservation of the Constitution as it is; and to tho end that the Constitution be upheld and the laws enforced, we pledge our hearty and unqualified support to the Federal Gov ernment. 3d. That the true and only object of the war is to restore the Union and enforce tho laws. Such a purpose alone will jus tify the awful cost of life and treasure sacrificed for its success, and those who form sectional feeling for party or private motives, would giro any other direction to the efforts of our armies, are unjust and unworthy to be entrusted with power, and would cause all other exertions extraordi nary and unparalloled as they are to prove futile in the end. 4th. That the party fanaticism that seeks to turn the slaves of the South free to overrun tha North and place them on an equality with white men, ia both inju rious and insalting to our race and mer its our most emphatic and unqualified condemnation. 5th. That wo denounce Southern Se cessionists and Northern Abolitionism as tho co-operating sources of our present calamities -alike treasonable to the Con stitution and inimical to the Union the only way to a restored Union and a re spected Constitution with returning peace and prosperity is through the over brow of both. 6th. That the Constitution and the laws are sufficient for any emergency and that the suppression of the freedom of speech, of the press, the unlawful arrest of citizens and the suspension of habeas corpus is violation of the Constitution in States where the civil authorities axe uu- impeded, are most dangerous to civil lib- igjerty, and should be resisted at the ballot box by every treeman or the land. 7th. That in view of the systematic plunder of the publio treasury by favored partisans at Washington and throughout tho country, and the reckless extravagance of the present Congress speak in thunder ing tones to every tax payer for an entire change of administration. On motion of Judge Buell of Wash ington, Hon. James R. Morris was nom inated for Congress by aeclamation. A committee of five were appointed to inform Mr- Morris of his nomination. Mr. Mo.tais appeared on the stand amidst shou- of applause, aud delivered a strong and vigorous speech in defence of the Demoratit party in its efforts to sustain the war. He exhorted the De mocracy to rally to the support of the administration in its efforts to put down the rebellion. He praised the noble stand Monroe had taken in furnishing troops, and exhorted the people to stand by the Democratic organization. Mr. S. Miller, being loudly called for, delivered a most excellent speech. On motion, the following District Com mittee was appointed: James Fish of Meigs, Isaac Sylvusof Athens, Wm.

Loss Two to Three Thousand on each side. General Pope on the Field. REBELS EVACUATE NEW MEXICO Federal Cavalry Attacked by In dians. (Treat Battle between Banks and Jackson, Headquarters Army of Virginia, ) G miles beyond Culpepper, Va., Aug. 10. j A battle was fought yesterday between Banks and Stonewall Jackson. General Bayard, of McDowell's corps, with his cavalry brigade, had been engag ed the day bofore in the extreme advance, near the Rapidan river, skirmishing anu manoeuvering, taking some prisoners and ending with slight loss, battling the efforts of a large force to surround and cut them off. Yosterpay morning he was engaged some hours before Banks came up, and with three regiments of cavalry, the 1st Pennsylvania, 1st Maine and 1st Rhode Island, delayed and embarrassed the ene my's advance. "The rebels under Jackson and Ewell had crossed the Rapidan in forca, and their advance guard, fifteen thousand strong, was attacked by Banks yesterday afternoon, about six miles south of Cul oeDuer Court House. The fight was al most wholly with artillery at first, but the infantry became engaged about six o'clock and a determined and most bloody con test ensued. Bank's right wing under Gen. Williams, suffered severely. The rebel position was in the woods, while the troops which attacked them were obliged to cross open ground. It was not until about six o'clock that it became evident the rebels were attack ing in force. Previously to that, there had been rather desultory cannonading. The whole rebel force suddenly attack ed in overwhelming numbers at all points. Nearly all their regiments had full ranks. At half past seven o'clock. Gen. Pope arrived on the field from Culpepper, ac companied by McDowell and part of Mc Dowell'! corps. The battle was substan tially over. Banks holding the same ground he occupied at the beginning. After the arrival of Pope, there was an artillery contest, lasting at intervals till near twelve o'clock. The night was un usually clear and the moon full. The rebels planted a battery against McDowell's center, when Gen. Pope and Gon. Banks were bringing both of them under fire. The Generals and staffs were so near the rebel lines that a sudden charge of robrl cavalry was made from ; the woods a quarter of a mile off, with a view to capture them. The attempt was repelled by a vigorous fire from McDow ell's troops, and the Generals and their staffs left the ground under a cross fire from the rebels aud their own troops. Pone, on arriving, sent fresh troops to ! iie iron to tiivo liiv judtc ui uduit a ex hausted columns. The enemy did not renew the attack, except by artillery. Gen. Banks was on the field through out the actios, Jand constantly under lire. His handling of his troops and personal gallantry are highly praised by his officers. The bravery and good conduct of the troops wore conepicuous during a large portion of the fight. When overpowered by numbers, some regiments retreated iu disorder. Col. Knight, 4.6th Pennsylvania, is dangerously wounded. Lieut. Col. Sol fridge, seriously; Major Mathews, arm amputated; Adjutant Boyd, severely; all of the same regiment. Col. Donnelly 28th N. Y.; Lieut. Col. Brown, arm am putated; Major Cook, killed; all of the 28th. Col. Chapman 5th Conn., wounded and prisoner; Lieut-Col. Stone, same regi ment, killed; Major Black, same regi ment, wounded and prisoner. Of the 2nd Mass., Major Savage is missing, probably killed; he was left on the field in a dying condition; Capt. Abbott killed. General B ink? is rather severely hurt by an acc-i. dent. A cavalry trooper ran against him, striking him heavily on the side. Col. Ruggles, chief of staff to Gen. Pope, had his horse shot under him. Lieut. Hop kins, 7th Ohio, is wounded. Two of Gen. Pope's body-guard were killed. The 2d Mass. was in the hardest of the fight, and suffered severely. The 5th Conn., 27th Ind., and 46th Pa. are badly cut up. Lieut. Ramsey, of Gen. Banks' staff had his horse shot under him. The rebel Gen. Wilder was wounded. The losses are very heavy on both sides, not less than two or three thousand in killed, wounded and missing on each side; some prisoners are taken by both. Jaekson and Ewell were both present in the battle. Reinforcement?, wider Gen. A. P. Hill to the amount of eighteen thousand men reached the rebels last night, at about the lame time that ours arrived. Skirmishing in front is going on this morning, but the troops on both sides are so much exhausted by fatigue and the in tense heat, that no serious encounter is expected to-day. No details hve been officially received. It is represented that Generals Prince, Anger aud Geary were wounded. GENERAL McCOOK'S FUNERAL. Cincinnati, Aug. 11. Gen. McCook's funeral was as imposing affair. There was a large attendance of military and citizens. The statement of the Philadelphia Press that the General was shot while kneeling and begging for mercy, is denied by Captain Burt, the General's Adjutant, who says he was kneeling assisting the driver to manage the frightened horses. The Coward's Welcome to Canada One of the Canadian papers thus welcomes the sneaks who are fleeing across the bor der to escape the fancied draft.

Officers absent, from duty without leave or beyond the time t;f their leave, will not be allowed to draw pay until a warrant or commission, which will be or dered on their return to their post or com mand, shall determine whether this is sufficient cause for their absence.

Officers of volunteers who are ab seut from duty on account of disease con tracted before they entered the service, will be immediately mustered out. Those who have been absent more than sixty days, on account of wounds or disease, contracted in the line of their duty, will be reported to the Adjutant General of the Army, for discharge in order that their placos may be filled by others, fit for field service. For this class of officers, Con gress has provided pensions. 4th. Applications for pensions must be made to the Commissioner of Pensions, who is the judge of the sufficiency of evi dence in support of such claims, and who furnishes the forms and regulations rela ting thereto. 5th. When an officer returns to his command, after having overstayed his leave of absence, he may be tried by a court martial, for this as a military offense, or a commission may be appointed by the com manding officer of his div's'on, army corps or army, as the case may be, to in vostigato his case and determine whethor or not, he was absent from proper cause, and, if there should be found to be such proper cause he will be eutitiea to pay during such absence.

To the Press of Ohio : The Governor is preparing his procla mation in relation to drafting, which will embrace in full the rules and regulations adopted by the War Department. Ths rules provide 1. That volunteering for new regi ments shall cease on the 22d of this month, but may be continued for regiments in the field until the first day oi September. 2. The quota of each county and town ship will be fixed, giving each duo credit for all volunteers furnished by it, then is serviee or enlisted. 3. A Commissioner will be appointed in each county to superintend the draft ing and determine the exemption; also, a Surgeon and Provost Marshal in each county to aid the Commissioner in the discharge of his duties. 4. Camps of rendezvous have already been established by the Governor and Commandants for each appointed. 5. The drafted troops, when assembled at the camps, will be- organized into com panies and regiments by tho Adjutant General in the same manner as volunteer regiments arc organized, except that the men will elect their own officers. " But few counties have yet returned their enrollments; hence the Governor is not yet able to make an apportionment among the several counties. He is of opinion that many of the counties will have furnished their full quota by the time drafting commences, if the present effort to fill up the old regiments shall continue. A largo number of recruiting officers for the old regiments have been appointed within a few days. These, with the aid of the several county military committee, are authorised to receive and pass volunteers for old regiments to this city to be mustered in. It ia expected by the Governor to fill up the old regiments hy the 1st day of September, when bouu- ties will cease. The quota assigned to Ohio under the recent calls is 74,000.

Volunteering to fill up all regiments in the field will contine on the same terms as heretofore until the 1st of September, and if not fil led up by that day, a special draft will be ordered for that purpose. The draft for three hundred thousand militia will commence on the fourth day of September, and continue from day to day until completed. And now, fellow citizens, one more grand effort, and the proud character of our noble State for gallantry and love of country will be sus stained. Respectfully. Signed DAVID TOD, Governor. Washinton, August 14. The follow ing additional regulations for the enroll ment for a draft of the milita were issued to-day: "Ordered eighth, That in filling all re quisitions for millitia the quotas of the several States will be apportioned by the Governors among the several counties, and when practicable among the subdivisions of counties, so that allowance shall be made to such counties and subdivisions of counties for all volunteers heretofore fur nished by them, and mustered into the ser vice of the United States, and whose stip ulated term of service shll not have expi- " Signed "EDWIN M. STANTON, "Secretary of War." New York, Aug. 13. The Fredericksburg correspondent of the Tribune states that an expedition from Burnside's division on Wednesday last made a deescent on the Virginia Central Railroad at Frederick Hall Station, took up eighty lengths of rail, cutthc telegraph, burning the wire and poles, and blew up -the road bed with powder. A large lot of new ruls, which were piled alongside the track were made into a barricade along the road bed, and warped and burned by kind ing lare fires under and about them. Company G, Cpt. Winter, Company H. Capt. Mclrwin, and Company E., Lieut. Loudon commanding, went down to tho station and destroyed the water tanks, tel egraph wire, and five thousand bushels of grain and a large lot of w hisky and other army stores, which were awaiting trans portation to tho enemy at Gordonsvillo. This force was in command of the brave and dashing Lieut. Col. Kilpatrick, who commanded in the recent brilliant raid to Beaver Dam. Adj. Benj. Gregory, with a part-, was sent down to near Bum pas turnout to blow up the trackand switch, which was accom plished in a most thorough and satisfactory manner. At this point the water tanks and depot wore buruod, the track was de stroyed and a small culvert was blown up with powder. A little further on the track was barricaded with new rails, rendered useless by burning, as were those above Frederick's Hall. Hearing that thret trains were expected up with troops from Richmond, the expe dition commenced its return mirch. The large bridge over the Pamnnkey was burnt, to prevent tho enemy tVom fol lowing up. FROM CULPEPPER. Washington, Aug. 13. Advices from Culpepper dated yeeter diy, says: Owing to severe injury Gen. Banks received, tho command of the 3rd corps has devolod upon Gen. Williams. Brig. Gen. Crawford commands tho di vision of Gen. Williams, and Gen. Green commands the division of Gen. Auger, who is severely but not dangerously wounded. An escaped prisoner saw at Orango Court House, Gen. Prince and Captain Wilkins, in the hands of the rebels. They were on their way to Richmond. On visiting the battle-field many, if not the greater part of our dead officers, were found, some partially and others entirely stripped of their uniforms. The rebel Generals Stuart and Early held the field, and conversed freely with our officers about the battle. They stated that the sull brigades of Generals A. P. Hill, Longstrect and Ewell, were opposed to our small band of heroes, and that they were terribly cut to pieces by our fire, leading to the inference that they suffered fully as much as ourselves. As previously stated, Stonewall Jack son commanded the field in person. Gen. Roberts, of Major-General Pope's staff, is Military Governor of the post at Culpepper, and on the day of the battle he rendered valuable assistance by his military experience. Louisville, Aug. 12. A Nashville despatch from Gen. Morgan, at Cumber land Gap, says: DeCourcey's brigade and the 14th Ken tucky, on the 5th or 6th inst., had several engagements with Stevenson's division ia fores. The rebels out numbered us 4 to 1, The rebels lost 225 killed and wounded and Lieut. Col. Gordon, of the 11th Tenn. ; taken prisoner. Our loss was three killed, I fi teen wounded and fifty prisoners. Two j companies of the 16th Ohio were surrouu- ded by two rebel regiments and cut their way out. e captured a large lot of for age, tobacco, horses and mules. John Morgan left Knoxvitlc on the 2d with 2000 cavalry, en route to Kingston. Ky., which is to be invaded.

But when the light of triumph Seemed shining on thy path, Thou wert the chosen victim Of stern relentless death, A bullet pierced thy bo;om, The crimson blood ran free. Oh! brother, thou art waiting In Heaven now for me. Thv comrades true and faithful Though perril bade them flee, Regarded not their c'aiger, But nobly cared for thee; They heard thy wail of suffering And quickly ran to thee: Oh! brother thou art waiting Is Heaven now for me. One noble friend stood by thee, Who saw tho bleeding fall. And w;pt to know his comrade Had met the fatal ball; In grief beyond expression He wept most bitterly: Oh! brother, thou art waitiug In Heaven now for me. Upon the rugged litter They laid thy bleeding form, And bore it off in sorrow Away from farther harm; Thy true and faithful comrade In sorrow turned from thee, His soul with thine, dear brother In Heaven waits for me. He started to his rifle. A bu'lt pierced his brain, He died without a struggle. Without one throb of pain; His nob e form now li;"e!c Lies sleeping tranquilly. His soul with thin."?, dear brother In Heaven waits for me. Thv brae undaunted chieftain His watchward liberty, Struck ter o.- to each b.som That fought for anarchy, The battle now is over, Oh. oar's the victory! But thou art gone to Ilcivon, Thy spirit wait for mc. Thy comrades ever faithful Pursued by traitors vile, Thy bleeding body carried O'er many a weary mile. They labored hard to save thee, Tears flowed in sympathy; But thou wert marked for Heaven To wait awhile for me. Our brother felt thy sufferings t He heard thv feeble moan. And sought thy dying pillow,' E'er yot thy soul had gone; But thou wert all unconscious, No hope of life for thee: Oh! brother thou art waitiug In Heaven now for me. Our brother took thy body Unto onr village home Though bleeding hearts w rc throbbing They laid it in the tomb, Tears of bitter anguish. In torrents fell for thee. Ohl brother thou art waiting In Heaves now for me. Ob! brother canst thou hear me! My life is ebbing low; I know that thou art neir me, I feel thy presence now. Oh! wait a little longer I soon shall be with thee, A little longer, brother, In Heaven wait for mc.
