KEEP IT BEFORE TEIE PEO PLEr That Mr. Catlcr, the abolition can date -for Congress in this District. RE FUSED to vote fbr the Crittewpen Kscolcticj? in Congress, when offered by Mr. Bolman ci' Indiana, last winter. Tie Crittenden Resolution ia the plat form of the Union parry, and is found at the head of cur paper. REMEMBER, Voters that you must choose between a Radicc! of the most ultra stripe who like Greeley opposes the acts of the President, or a Conservative who endorsing the Ciittcuden Resolution, is in favor of prosecuting the war for the resto ration of the Uniou and the perpetuation of'tne Constitution. The Candidates fur Congress We notice that tho abolition papers in this Congressional District are in extaeies over the nomination of Mr. Cutler for Congress. Of course they are, because Mr Cutler i? a mar of their stripe. Mr. Cutler's record in Congress shows hini to be aa vltra Aim -bla very man, in other words an abolitionist. Here is the testimony of the Cincin nati Commercial concerning such men, the. exact language: '-The ultra ati f; LA very men in Congress have during the faje session damaged the Union cause by tht artieemly -urgency of partisan meas ure." Mr. Cutler is- ne of the ultra men re lefred to by the Commercial. Will men claiming to be union men voteJ'or him? We desire to see men elected to Con grew who will lOT dau:ate the Union eauee, ad we further hope and trust th;t a fofrge majority of .he voters in this dis trict desire to see Union men elected to gonfrwf. OUR TICKET. We have now our full ticket in the field. In another column will be found the pro ceedings of the Detnooratie County Con- venfcien. In these stirring war times we have not room for comment- The- ticket selected by the Convention is a good one and of conrse will be elected. We very much regret to learn that Lieu. J. D. Jlerryuaan of this place, was badly wounded in the leg during the late engagement at Manassas. This is the sec ond time he has been wounded, and we hope he will soon receive the promotion he desevei for his gallantry and good conduct. Major W. T. Morris, of the 11 6th Regiment left for Camp on Monday last. fisar" Major Williams, of the 25th Ohio had his horse shot from under him during the late engagement. Tbe Issue in this District. The question that the vcter3 of this Congressional District have to determine it the ballot box, this fall, is whether they will be represented by an ultra Republi can, now commonly termea an aDolition ist, or by a Union man. Mr. Cutler, immediately on his re turn from Congress, made a speech in Marietta, in which he is reported to have denounced the President for not conduct ing the war in a proper manner, for not adopting a proper policy, &c, &e., in the usual style of Greeley abolitionists. Mr. Morris, on his return home, com menced and continued to make Union war speeches during the whole time the Government was raising volunteers. This s a fair, specimen of the patriotism and love of the Union possessed by the two candidates for Congress in this District. Choose ye between them. We will do Mr. Cutler no injustice. That he is an abolitionist he has himself proclaimed. He has proclaimed himself in favor of abolishing slavery, and that is what we mean and that only, when we call him an abolitionist. Let us try him by his own record. In a speech delivered by him iu Congress, on the 23rd of April last, he starts off by printing in capitals at the head of his speech as a text, or as embodying the sentiment wkich he had discussed, these words: " Slivery a public enemy, and ought therefore to be destroyed; a nuisance that must be abated." From the first page of hiB speech we quote these words : "The short logio now rannlng through the minds of many people Is. this: slavery is the cause of this war; therefore slavery must be destroyed." From the 10th page of his speech we extract this paragraph : I have thus brieflv examined the first and second general propositions proposed in the outset, namely, that Congress, as the nation' sovereignty, has a right to destroy enemies of the natioual lifv: that slavery is such an enemy which brings me to the conclusion that it is, thenfort, the RIGHT and DUTY of Congress o destroy slavery." From the 11th page we make the fol lowing extract: "As I view this matter, I would as soon think of allowing a nest of vipers to live in the cradle of my children at to permit thi i ! system of slavery longer to exist in thia country. According to my conservatism, it is simply a question between the children and And from the 12th pnge the following: a6m u 8Qenor aTtZ n n . , Jtv A gentleman who arrived from Bull I reiterate the words ttged by the honora- t ,v- -aj.. j ., v ble gentleman from Pennsylvania, Mr. Bra" ?un' thi8 (Monday) morning, says fight ranj in the preamble to his bill now under g going on all day yesterday be consideration slavery has caused the pres- tween Centerville and Thoroughfare Gap. ent rebellion, and there can be no permanent j Yesterday morning, by order of Gen. peaoe and union in this Republic so long as i Pope, one hundred and forty-eight cars that institution exists,'1 Everybody knows j amj five locomotives were destroyed by this to b true.

Iu these extracts Mr. Cutler has dis tinctly and unequivocally announced him self an abolitionist, and that this war should bring slavery to an end Mr. CCTLEE says it is " the right aud duty of Congress to destroy slavery." !

"My paramount object is to save the Union, and not either to save or destroy slavery." Mr. Cutler says "Everybody knows that there can be no permanent peace and union in this Kcpublic so long aa that institution slavery! exists." President Lincoln, iu the letter before quoted from, says: " If there be those who would not j save the Union, unless they could, at the same time, destroy slavery, I do not agree with them." "If I could save the Union without freeing any slaves, I would do it." il l anybody, after reading the ex tracts above quoted from Mr. Cutler'8 speech, deny that he is in favor of abol ishing slavery by the action of Congress? If he is in favor of such action he is an abolitionist, because he can find no au thority in the Constitution to warrantsuch ercise of power by Cougress. The claim i that Congress can abolish slavery in the S ate.- , is the worst form that abolitionism has ever assumed in this country. The Kej ui. lican party never pretended to claim any tuch power no puriy ever claimed such power except the very ultra aboli- litknieU.. Democratic Convention, County The Delegates to the Demosratic Con tention of Monroe County, met at the court house, in Woodsfield, on the 1st day of September, and organized by appoint ing EDWARD SALISBURY, President, and J. P. Strigq and Doct. J. Way, Secretaries. The following delegates reported them selves to the Convention: Adams, John Sawyers; Beoton, Joseph Algeo; Bethel George W. Waller; Cen ter, E. Salisbury; Franklin, J. W. Wheel er; Green. H. T. Mitchell; Jackson, Wm. Holswart, Malaga, J. J. Egger; Ohio. John Tisher, Perry. S. A. Morgan; Seneca, J. P. Spriggs; Summit, Philip Weber; Sunsbury, B. J. Philips; Salem, J. D. O'Connor; Switzerland, ; Wash ington, Doct. J. Way; Wayne, D. C. Morris. Whereupon the Convention proceeded to count the votes, as follows : For Auditor Michael Hoeffler; For Commissioner George S. Algeo: For Surveyor Oliver S. Sloan; For Infirmary Director E. McMahon. On motion, the following resolutions were unanimously adopted: Resolved, That tais t onvention cordial ly approve and adopt the Address and Resolutions adopted by the Democratic State Convention. Resolved, That the unexampled prompt ness with which almost a regiment of the gallant men of Monroe responded to the l ite call of the President for more troops, receives and merits our warmest gratitude, and is a just cause of pride to the citizens of this County. Resolved, That this Convention cordi ally endorse and approve the course of the Hon. James R. Morris in Congress, and that his nomination meets with the unqualified approbation of the Democracy of Monroe Whereupon, on motion the Convention adjourned without day. E. SALISBURY, Pres't. J. RrRIGGS, Secretaries. The next Congress will settle the destiny of this Government. How im- . . 1 , , 1 TV portant tnen it is, mat Lemocrat3 aro.i Conservatives be elected, who will oppose the schemes of rebels and abolitionists who desire the Constitution tole changed, eich to suit their own peculiar views. The Bull Run Battles. Our Loss Greater than at First Report ed Rebels Surrounded. New York, Sept. 2. The Tribune's Washington correspondence, dated Sept. 1st, says: It is generally conceded that General Pope somewhat exaggerated our loss in the dispatch fixing it at eight thousand in killed and wounded, and de- cidedly exaggerated the enemy's loss, in placing it at double that number. Tbe : record of all the battles, including that of Saturday, will show, as is thought, a loss i of from ten thousand to twelve thousand I & least on our side, in killed, wounded ! an(i prisoners. The loss of the enemv is thought to have been less, since they fought much as usual, behind cover. Many of our artillery horses, at which the enemy directed many of their heavy guns, were shot down, and several batteries were captured. The enemy's whole force, according to every prisoner's account, is now entirely surrounded by our army, with no possi- that 4- fl.'rtir!rifv triinnilf fVi a rrroo raot battle of the campaign being fought i ' a f-j a munition and stores, at hristow Station. The empty cars and engines alone are esti mated to be worth $185,000. The rebels burned two engines and forty-eight cars at the same place on Tuesday night. It is said that within the last twenty four hours the enemy has fallen back to a new line of defense. A Lieutenant that was captured says that one hundred and fifty thousand reb els attempted to get through Thorough fare Gap, but that only one hundred thousand were able to do so. Their forces were commanded by Ewell, - WM. If so, he probably had a double task to perform to repulse both Gen. Lee from the Rappahannock; and a portion of Jack son's or Longstreet's forces from this side. Burnside, Banks and Hooker seem to have had an enemy to contend with in both front and rear. It is now certain that Gen. Banks not only burned his own baggage train, but destroyed thirty locomotives and three trains of oars laden with ammunition and supplies. Tbe locomotives and oars were at Bristow Station. Gen. Reno said in conversation to-day, that he never saw a more daring act than one performed by the rebels on Saturday. Out of the woods on the flank of several of his batteries swarmed what appeared to be strugglers from our forces; a few at first, then more and more, until not less than a regiment or two had emerged. He completely deceived, until they were ! nearly upon his guns, when he caught I sight of tbe red patch, knew thein to be (rebels, turned his artillery in a twinkling ', upon them, and destroyed almost every man. Washington, Sept. 2. A gentleman who returned from the Monroe battle-field this morning, reports that in Saturday's fight our left wing was com manded by Gen. McDowell, but owing to the murderous enfilading fire of the reb els, he was compelled to fall back. Gen. Sigel commanded the center and Kearney the right. It appears that our forces attacked the enemy in the woods, from which the lat ter opened numerous batteries, Causing great slaughter. The rebels suffered equally as much as our own troops. Our men, fearless and determined, fell back about a mile, leaving the dead and wound ed on the field. Our informant says tnat our main forces were five miles from Centerville on Sun day, in battle array, and prepared for all emergencies, having been strongly rein forced. All the wounded had been re moved from the field of Thursday and Friday, which was yesterday still in our possession. The scene of the conflict of Saturday the enemy still occupy. The cars came in this morning from the first named field bringing many wounded, some to Alexandria and others to Wash ington. Many ladies have made liberal contributions from their private stores, and have been exemplary in their care and attention to the wounded. In fact the people of this District are acting nobly, and not a few men have volunteered as uurscs. Our informant, when passing through Centerville, saw thousands of stragglers at that place, men of different regiments all mixed up together. Our informant returning to the city this morning early, saw them all marching back to their re spective regiments. They appeared cheer ful, and anxious to rejoin their comrades. When the ambulances in large numbers reached the battle-field yesterday to bring away the wounded, a stampede commenced among them, the drivers having turned the heads of their horses toward tbe road leading t Washington, and cpmn;enced' a hasty retreat with their empty vehicles. Some frightened driver imagined thri Gen. Stuart's rebel cavalr' was dashing up, and accordingly gave the alarm. The panic spread almost with the speed of elec tricity, and doubtless would have been prolific of serious consequences had not the guards on the road rushed forth with pointed guns and threatened to shoot the drivers unless they returned to the field. This conduct on the part of the guard had the desired effect, as after awhile the am bulances again reached the field aud per formed their appropriate duty in bringing away the wounded. There seems to bo no doubt that the pickets of the enaray were hovering around the persons engaged in their humane work on the field, but up to an early hour thi6 morning they had not been interrupted. Ambulances are continually arriving here with the wounded and a small proportion of the sick. From all that can be gath ered we have suffered severely. Our men are confident of retrieving our loss of Saturday. It was owing to their impetuosity and daring in charging the enemy in the woods that they suffered so many casualties. A large number of stragglers on their way to Washington and Alexandria wore picked up by the rebels during last night. There was no fighting of consequence on Sunday, enly octa ional skirmishing or a few shots thrown into the woods from time to time, on the enemy as if to try the range of our guns. From the severe conflict previously, it was evident thst both armies were engaged in repairing dam ages. About one o'clock yesterday afternoor, several trains of cars at Manassas Juuc tion, with ammunition and stores, were burnt by the military authorities to pre vent their falling into the hands of the rebels, which seemed to be imminent, the bridge of Bull Run having been destroyed by the rebels, and the property therefore be;ng cut off from retiring to a place ol ANOTHER SEVERE BATTLE. Washington, Sept. 2. Generals Kearney and Stevens were killed in a severe engagement which took place last evening near Chantil'y, about two miles north of Fairfax Court. House, between a portion of Gen. Pope's army aad J ackson's forces. Our loss was heavy, but tbe enemy was driven back a mile and we occupied the field of battle until three o'clock this morning. Cairo, Sept. 3. Despatches received at Headquarters from Jacksona on the second, says Bolivar is reported to be invested by a heavy force under Gen. Price. There is also a large force of the enemy within 7 miles, threat ening an attack. Villipique is reported to have crossed Hatchee river at Brownsville on the night of the 18th. We have whipped the ene my in every skirmish. The Grenada Appeal confirms the evac uation of Baton Rouge, but does not say the place was destroyed. From tho same paper we learn that the gunboat Essex shelled Bayou Sara on Sunday morning, and aftewards the boat's crew landed and burned all the houses on the levee. The Essex and the transports then passed down the river, it is supposed for reinforcements to destroy St. Fran cisville. A skirmish took place bctweeu the rebel pickets and a squad of Federals, on the 27th ult., at Greenville, Miss. Two Fed erals were killed. In the rebel attack on Uniontown, Ky., they captured two hundred stand of arms, and destroyed 200 bales of cotton. THE POSITION OF OUR ARMY IN VIRGINIA. Washington, Sept. 4. The work of getting the army into good position haB been accomplished with entire success. So well conducted has been the process of falling back from Centerville to its present position of defense, that not one army wagon was lost on the route: every thing was carried through in the most sys tematic manner. Many of the troops now occupy positions a short distance from the positions of last fall and winter. The division of Major-General Fitz John Port er, composed of the brigades of General Morrell, Martindale, Butterfield and Grif fin, have their tents pitched near the camp ground of last year. The tents of the famous Griffin battery, now commanded by Lieutenant Hazlett, a gallant officer, who was with the battery at the first battle of Bull Run, have their camp upon the identical piece of ground occupied by them last wiutcr. DRAFTING IN OHIO TO TAKE PLACE ON THE 16TH INST. Coiambus, O., September 1. To the several Commissioners to superin tend drafting: By virtue of the authority given me by the Secretary of War, I do hereby extend the time for the commencement of the ex ecution of tho order heretofore given to draft militia for the Army of the United States until the 16th day of this month, on which day you will, in the manner hereto fore directed, commence the execution of said order. The change of time is rendered neces sary from the failure to receive the neces sary returns from many of the counties in the State. In the mean time, you will go steadily forward in your duty of hearing exemptions, passing upon claims that may be presented and correcting the enroll ments. DAVID TOD, Governor. Columbii8, Ohio, September 1. To the Several Military Committees: Finding it necessary to extend the time for the commencement of drafting the mil itia until the ltith inst.., I made applica tion to the Secretary of War for permis- 1 sion to extend the recruiting service for Iboth the new and old regiments until that time, I am happy to be able to announce to you that he has complied with my re quest. Recruiting, therefore, for all the new regiments now organizing and for all the old regiments in the field mav at once be resumed, and continue until the 15th of September, on the same terms and condi tions including pay and bounty, as hereto fore. For the new regiments there are wanted about two thousand men, and for the old regiments about twenty one thousand men, or in all about twentv-three thousand. Can this fo' ce be raised by voluntary en- listment. and thembv th frnnhl. expense and vexation of resorting to draft- mg in unior it is believed that it can be more than twice that number has been raised within tho past few weeks, and. sure ly, the gallant men of Ohio are not weary in their good work. The events of the past few days clear ly demonstrate? the necessity of this large uomand upon the patriotism and gallantry of the loyal people of Ohio. Neither wants, townsnips nor counties shouM stop to inquire whether or not thev have fur- nUbprl thr fkin.A. . . . - - - defenders, but all should do all thev are . I able to do It may not be amiss, however, to say, in this connection, that the estimate heretofore of thirty-three per cent of the enrolled militia as each district's propor tion is entirely too low. as, from the re turns made, it is evident that it will re quire at least forty percent. The returns we have will furnish the number of volunteers we have up to this date, and, that complete justice may be done to each separate district, you arc re quested to furnish the Commissioners of your respective counties with the names of! all who mav volunteer and be mustered in . i between this time and the 10th, that Bnfr:S.

In communities where there are no re cruting officers for tho old regiments, the military committees are authorized to act as such, by receiving the recruit, furnish ing him subsistence, and giving him a cer tificate oftransportatioa to this city, where he will be sworn in, equipped, and receive his bounty, advance pay, andtransportaion to the regiment he may wiah tj j oin. DAVID TJD. Governor. THE WAR ON THE BORDER. Cincinnati, Sept. 2, 1S62. To the Loyal People of the River Counties: Our Southern border is threatened with invasion.

Washington, Sept, 2. A Train of cars having on board five hundred or six hundred soldiers who were wounded in Saturday's fight, came dowu this morning from Fairfax. They represent, amoug others, the 25th Ohio, 6th Regulars, 30th New York, and a number of New York and other-regiments. A guard also came down, having in charge seven Confederate prisoners. Our army has advanced two miles to ward the late battle-field. The killed are being buried and the wounded removed under a flag of truce. About two thousand three hundred have thus far been removed from the various fields of battle: A long train of wounded soldiers have just come in from Fairfax station. It is reported that three or four depart ment clerks who went out as nurses, have fallen into the hands of the rebels. Senator Fessenden is expected here to night, His son Samuel was killed in the battle of Friday, and was buried at Center ville. Gen. Ashley of Ohio has arrived here. Memphis; Sept. 2 A special dispatch to the Missouri Democrat says that the Grenada Appeal of Sept. 2d, says that the forts below New Orleans have surrendered to the fleet of confederate gunboats. That Baton Rouge has been evacuated by the federals and the forces taken to Ney Or leans, to defend that place. When our forces left Baton Ronge they took the ma chinery in the penitentiary and after set ting loose all the convicts, received them into the army. A dispatch in the Appeal, of the 29th dated Bayou Sara 25th ult., says that tbe federal steamer Essex arrived here on Sat urday and shelled the town on Sunday morning, without doing much damage. They then landed two boat loads of troops and set fire to the town. All the houses on the levee were burned, except two. After firing the front of the town, they went around pillaging all the houses that were not burned. While doing this some of the Pelicans fired upon them but with what is not known. They then returned to their boats and steamed down the river. Port Hudson is being fortified bv the rebels, so says the Vickeburg Citizen. A GLANCE AT THE NEWS. Gov. Tod, of Ohio, haB issued a proc lamation ordering all the loyal men of the several counties to form themselves into companies fbr the defence of the State. Gov. Curtin, of Pennsylvania, has done the same. It seems that Ohio and Penn sylvania are threatened with an invasion from the rebels. What the rebels can ex pect to accomplish by such a raid, more than to do some temporary mischief, we are unable to divine. It must be utter destruction to them to undertake such an enterprise. From the South we learn that Baton Rouge had been entirely destroyed by our troops. Breckinridge had demanded its surrender, but he only found a pile of ruins. The last whereabouts of Stonewall Jack son seems to be somewhere in the vicinity of Leesburg, with 40,000 men. He is moving towards Edward's Ferry on his way to Baltimore. Whether he will at tempt so hazardous an undertaking re mains to be seen. We cannot think that such blind desperation has, as yet, seized the minds of these traitorous barbarians. It seems that Pope has fallen baek to wards Washington. If this be true it will place his column under the command of McClellan. The Baltimore American learns that when (he news reached the ar my that they were to bo under the com mand of McClellan, the most wild enthu siasm prevailed, and they desired to be turned back and meet the enemy at once. On Wednesday night the city of Wash ington was in great excitement. The commissary stoies were intercepted by the enemy near Fairfax Court House. The newssecms to indicate that the Capital is seriously threatened. Matters exhibit a j suspicion that the withdrawal of McClcl ! Ian from the Peninsula, was not so great a strategetic movement, after all. Martial Law in Cincinnati, Covington and Newport. Cincinnati, September 2.

A train of twelve wagons were captur ed twelne miles from Cincinnati this morning. Large numbers of negroes arc being sent across the river to work on the forti fications. Excitement at. Washington Commissary Stores Gupturai. Washington. September 3. The city to-night is in a state of great excitement, and not without cause. Last night there was a series o( skirmishing along the whole front, during which we lost two of our best (jenersls aud otner valuable officers. It is stated that it was Hooker's brigade which drove the rebels back, but this mile of skirmishing was attended with great loss of life. At 4 o'clock this morning a train of one hundred wagons of commissary stores was intercepted by the enemy between Fairfax and Centerville, and driven off to wards Centerville before it could be over taken. When this raid on our rear at Center ville was known, the necessity of guard ing in that direction caused onr whole army to abandon Centerville, and it was massed this side of Fairfax Court House. This noon it again marched, aud by even ing onr advance was in sight of Munson's Hill. Rebel cavalry followed at distance, but made no attack. To-day McClellan rode to meet the ar my and was received with great gratifica tion. The work for the dofense are in good order, and manned by experienced artil lerists, and gunboats now line tbe Poto mac. A long Cabinet meeting was held to day.
