Douglas. Tiie CtrnveatiioBt As will be seen in another column the; Demooratio Central OotnniiUoc decided to hS'd a d'c!gnto Convention this year. This is 'to sumo oxteiit an experiment, as it has Leon a long time since, with one ex'epu jr., that a convention of this kind lilts beta held in this county. One thing s certain, and that is, that overt gou D-moorat will acquiesce in tho action of the Central Committee aud also the action A' tho Conveutiou to bo held on the 6th cb.y of July, next, whsther it suits them not. Objections now can do r.o good and may do much harm. We make these remarks not becaure we know of any ob jection, but because a chanqe in the! method of nominations may lead to con tentions which in these times of all others should be avoided. One or two errors crept into the notice of the proceedings which have been corrected. The names ef delegates were not correctly reported, and the time of holding the convention J ahoold have ben one o'clock instead of; 10 o'clock at night. T2n Administration va. Govern snent. the Nearly all the mistakes that are made ; by tho.so in power arise from the belief, r the pretended belief, that the adminis tration and the 'Government are ej nono m us. Every one knows that this doc trine or theoiy is advocated by the Re publican party and that it is one of their fundamental principles. If the r.dminis- -i t i i f ! .ftrtion isthe Government in time Of war, it is aquauy so in nine oi peace; lor u Vill hardly be pretended that a war can "change this principle. ' Opposition U the administration is opposition to the tSoverameiit. and opposition to the Gov ernment is treason, say tbe Republicans, fil thnsc Republicans who advocate the emims of Chase, Seward, ic, for the next pisesidemy will find themselves in quite 'a dilenmia, i'.s there is no doubt that Mr. Lincoin will be a candidate. Mr. Lin coln n ..nv is the administration or rather .th Govern ipent. All those who oppose i re-election will oppose the Govern 'luont, and will therefore be guilly of tfea 'son. .The deduction is logical, and the J'oilowers of Chase might as well subside at once. If the Democrats hsd been so j fortunate as to have made this dhcovery komcwhat oner, it would most certainly iiase prevented our present war; because "iJ-we.nJid have had no change in the ad .asrijrietraticn. or rather the Government, and Jeff p ivii and bis followers would have had no pretext for secession.

THE SPIRIT ma j. m The itarnes'ille Meeting. 4 mttt' k-- Ahout 3000 irs(.ii attended the meet ing held in Barievillo ouj the liOth ult. Hon's. Win. Kcnnrrn. Jas. R. Mortis, Jos. W. WhTte and Geo. L. Converse addressed the meeting. The speeches were excellent and every - f-thing passed of pleasantly, with the ex ception of a difficulty which occurred in tho evening as follow : The national flag (not the 16 starred concern carried in I860) upon which was the following motto: "Do right and trust in God, Vallandigham" was leaning oj its staff 'against the Mills Hise. A paroled sol dier tore it off the staff and ran off and was' pursued by one of the men attending the meeting. The soldier was overtaken and upon the flag being demanded of him, the soldier struck the person in the face with a bowio knife inflicting a serious wound, which was dressed by Doct. G. W. Githen and the wounded man, we are informed, is recovering rapidly. In the moan time a large crowd gathered around the house where the soldier had taken refuge and had it not been for II. T. Barnes and other influential citizens pres ent the soldier would have paid rather dear for the sport he was engaged in, no doubt at the suggestion of othors. We have heard it said that the flag which oc casioned the disturbance was a "secesh flag." We would like to know whether a flag' with 16 stars i? the true Union or national flag? In another column we publish General Hunter's letter to. Jeff. Davis, in which he says that he will execute " the rebel of the highest rank in my (his) posses sion" in retaliation for every nigger sold into "slavery.. The manifest result of this is, that Gen. Hunter imperils the life of every man under his command, should they be captured for the purpose of noti saving the life of a nigger but of insuring hb freedom The life of a white soldier against the freedom of a nigger !

Greeley's Opinion of Aboli tionists. In a Saturday's Tribune Mr. Greeley say:, . known "Oisin S. Murray is widely an original, extreme and uncompromising .Vboiitionist. Jjilce most men of his school, ha tegardp epery one icho docs not see ex actly us he docs us a knave or fool oftener 1olJt and treats him accordingly." In the lines we have placed in italic. Mr. Gieeley has not only described Mur ray's faults, but the faults of himself and most of the leading Republicans. The also, to the pleasant epithets of knave and ford. ;u;d that ot traitor to their political r..ppononta,wbo see thiugs in a different iigbt! Tle Administration, assuming that tli Federal Army is made up of Asses bke unto itself, undertook to dictate what newspapers the soldiers should read and what they should not. K.lated with ap parent success in that quarter, it is now trying the same thing on its subjects at home. The Chicago Tms, the aide and patriotic life-long organ of the lamented Doufrlas, has been .suppressed, by order of Gen". Burnside; and the New York World, the ablest and most consistent Vigorous War Journal in America is denied circu lation in this Western Department. To advocate war or what else you please, is no merit unless you 'accompany it with the advocacy of Abolitionism. Doesn't Wendell Phillips, Greeley, Beecher, and that class, criticise the actiou of the Ad ministration most severely, and even fer vently thank God for disasters to our ar tnier But they are all right on the ue- -. and are ever ready to servilcly ap- plaud every despotic act of oppression di rected by petty tyrants at Democrats.

A motion was made in the United States Court this morning, by the Times' counsel, to defer application for injunction until notice of application could be given the military commandant at Camp Douglas. Judge Drummond, in Ptj6 W I may be par doned for saying that, personally and offi cially, I desire to give every aid and as sistance in my power both to the Govern ment and the Administration in restoring the Union, but I have always wished to treat the Government as a Government of law and a Government of Constitution, and not as a Government of mere physical force. I personally have contended, and always shall contend, for the right of free j discussion, and the right of commenting, under the law and under the Constitution, upon acts of the oflicers of the Govern ment." During the daytime the office seemed the center of attraction, and was visited by a large number of people. In accord ance with a call issued this forenoon, an immense meeting assembled at eight oclock to-night in front of the office. The crowd soon filled the street, rendering it impassable. The meeting shortly after ward adjourned to the Court-house square and was addressed from the north-side i entrance bv gentlemen of both parties. The speeches counseled obedience to laws, but denounced tho recent order of Gen. Burnsideas arbitrary anddespostio. Dur ing the afternoon the militia were ordered under arms, but at the present writing the meeting is orderly, and nothing of a seri ous nature is anticipated. J udge Davis, of the United States Court for the Southern District of Illinois, is expected here to-night, to act in the mat ter of an application for injunction in con nection with Judge Drummond. Gen. Animen is also expected here to-night. Chicago Times Indignation ! Resolutions 171 the Illinois Mouse of lien- rcscntatives. Springfield, III., June 3.

A special dispateh to the Chicago Times dated headquarters in the field, near Vicksburg, May 23, says : But little has been effected during the past thirty-six hours. Over one hun dred pieces of field artillery and several siege guns rained shot and shell on the enemy's works, yesterday. The mortar fleet also took position be hind De Soto Point, and bombarded the city during the entire day On the right General Sherman has pushed Steele's division squarely to the foot of the para pets. Our men lay in the ditches in the slope of the parapet on the side of one of the principal forts, but utlable to take it by storm, and yet determined not to retire. Tho Federal and rebel soldiers wero no twenty feet apart, and both powerless to inflict much harm. .Each watches the other, and a dozen muskets are fired when a soldier exposes himself above the works on either side. Nearly the same coudition of things ex ists in Mc'Pherson's front. His sharp shooters prevent the working of the ene my's pieces in one or two forts. A charge was made yesterday morning on one of them by Stephenson's brigade, and was repulsed. Two companies of one regiment got in side. A few got out again, but most of them were captured. The forts are all filled with infantry. Our artillery hns dismouted a few guns and damaged works in some places, but they are still strong. General McClernand was hard pressed on the. left yesterday, and seut for rein force incuts Quimby's division went to the assist ance at four o'clock. The contest lasted until seven. One of our flags was planted at the foot of tho earthworks on the out side of the rebel fort, and kept there sev eral hours, but the fort was not taken.

Gen. Sherman supposed the enemy had removed his heavy guns to the rear of the city. On the contrary he seemed to have plaiitid more on the waterside than usual. The Cincinnati was sunk and went down in shoal water with her flag flying. The enemy still continued to fire upon her, but the flag was not hauled down. Twenty-five men werekiiled and wounded and 15 are'missing. The latter are supposed to be drowned. The vessel can be raised. The pilot was killed early in the action. Signed David D. Porter.
