The Campaign in Greene.
This has been an eventful week in Xenia.
Our last number was issued during the greatest
throng of the military at Camp Greene. We
were not aware that so many people were still
left, as were in camp on last Wednesday. But
that was not all the excitement.' The meeting

Every man is made for something, but not every I
man finds hi9 vocation. Mr. R. has found his.
He was born for a speech-maker, and he makes
, e , , , I
speeches. Some men are debaters, some are j
logicians, some are deciaimers, and some are
merely brawlers; but Matthew R. he's a
'stumper." " He ought to be set on a political
stump, and have his food and drink carried to
him. To be sure, he does well enough in other
places, but plenty of men can do as veil as he off
the stump, while few can do a3 well on it.
.Well, on last Tuursday night, Mr. H. made a
speech ia frout of the Court-house. He started
out slowly and deliberately, as if feeling his way,
alluded to the war, and proposed to speak of its
cause of that "peculiar institution," and its
effects, which was "now about to be swept from

The entire possessions of some families could
be transported on a wheelbarrow. Many of his
hearers, no doubt, had seen an emigrant train
traveling westward, consisting of an old horse,
one eye blind and the other knocked out, har

hitched to a cart with wooden tires, in the cart
a broken chair and an old spinning-wheel, under

his Satanic Majesty, to visit in a -dream, which
meeting was Tery much like the "peace meet

The butternuts were effectually Hull ed the
next day they got cracked.
At the close of Mr. H.'s remarks, Rev. M. P.
Gaddis was called out, and made a few well-timed
remarks, and gave notice that, on the next
evening, would js, to the stereotyped lec
ture of eorge E. IVti, gn "Arbitrary Arrests,
Liberty of-Speech, anAegro Equality."
Bv the next eveimig, Lieut. -Governor Stan-

was not much left of the traitorous doctrines of
"Glorious George." Mr. Gaddis spoke first, re
viewing Pugh's speech at considerable length,
givinp home traitors no quarter, and "conserva

servative rooster a shanghai that was
claimed alike by two neighbor women. Con
servative like, he roosted, n tlie fence, between
the homes of the disputants, and, in the morn
ing, each claimant came , with a handful cf corn
to bait him to her side. As they thnw the
corn toward him, he would look to one side,
then to the other, and finallv starved to death
before he could decide whose corn to eat. So

Manv of our readers have heard Mr. G., and
they can realize something of the stirring senti

Mr. G. was followed by Governor Stanton.
Governor S. is one of the great Statesmen of
America. His was the profound the logical
speech of the week. Having taken no notes,
we cannot pretend to give even a specimen of
his argument. Although the boor was late, the
audience stood up, closely picked, -and listened
with profound attention, tut be was uirouch.
; By Saturday evening- it was a "confirmed
habit", for the people to assemble at the court

speakers came, this time Mr. Gaddis and Rev.

The speeches were characteristic of th men,
abounding in wit, humor, argument, sarcasm,
and denuveiaiiun wlien Vallandigham was no

The audiences were delighted, as was manifested
by the heartiness of the cheers ; and the resolve
was individually - re-resolved, that traitors in

To a sympathizer with treason, to an enemy of
our glorious Union, to a Rebel, if any had been

imagine there were none,) the sipht would have
been a nausea, a bolus of jalap, in his treason
able soul that wculd, although he had become
hardened by repeated doses, purge him of the
unnatural humors to which he had become sub

draught of fresh mountain-air, buoyant and
exhiliarating. It required only the presence of
cavalry and artillery to imagine a field-dav of
the Army of the Potomac. It is estimated that
ten thousand soldiers were present; though one
would have guessed a much larger number.

In tiie whirl of military excitement, conse
quent upon my visit to Xenia, I had forgotten
that the Seutinel had made its appearance.
Strange that the military associations had not
brought it to my mind. The Sentinel,-as the
name imports, is a watchman a watchman
over the interests of the county and of the
party; but a watchman suddenly placing himself
on tiie alert, implies that there is something to
be watched. This is fully explained in the first
number of the Sentinel, where it sets forth that
the Torch-Light, while professing to be, as it
should be, the organ of the Union party of
Greene County, was endeavoring, by sins of
omission and commission, to defeat the regular
nominations of the party, and was connniving
at the personal interests ot certain gentlemen
who had submitted their claims to the Conven
tion, and had pledged themselves, as is custom
ary and inviolate, to abide by its decision, but
who were defeated in the Convention, and had
consequently bolted. Now this, it would seem,
was an exigency that required another organ of
the Union party of the county. Surely, if this
be true, the necessity for another organ cannot
be gainsayed. Not, I presume, that the Xenia
Sentinel desired to assume to itself the organ
ship of the Union party of the county, but that
the Xenia Torchlight, the old magnet of the
party, which had always pointed right hereto
fore, had become somewhat disturbed in its rec
titude by the neighboring influence of a few po
litical favorites, and that the business of the
Sentinel was to attract it the other way back to
its old position, and keep a zealous watch, lest
its aged foot-steps fall again into the pit. Am
From Spring Valley.
STRING VALLEY, September 5, 1863.
EurroES Sentinel. This little village has
fluctuated considerably in interest within the
past week. During the two great training days
it was very dull. Lieutenant siece came down
on Monday and mustered in the Bobtailed Blues
(so named in memory of their short blouses,)
ready for transportation to the seat of war, viz.:
Camp Greene. After a few military evolutions
in the evening, the company took its departure
on the 7 o'clock train. T he boys all seemed to
hold up well; I didn't notice that there was a
single tear shed. But then people have got used
to going to war now-a-days, and we can't expect
so much manifestation of feeling as we had at
first, when it was a new thing. Joking aside,
the Independent Company in this place is com
posed oi a sterling and fine looking set of men.
Their uniforms were eotlen np by a shoddy
contractor, who arranged the' blouses strictly
I with reference to a retreat, making them very
short so that no man should interfere with him-
self bv tramping on his coat tails. This 'gives
tlie company a rather unique appearance. As
far as I know, the boys all got along very well
in ramp; some of them, though, "went back"
on Uncle Sam excessively when he roused tnem
at 5 o'clock in the morning for roll-call and
drill. Tbev, however, became very loval dur

The Jamestown Fair.
To the Board of Managers of the Union Agricul
Gentlemen- Many things combined tended
to make our last Fair a failure. The situation
of the county on account of the wicied and n
ustifiable rebellion for the last two years; the
encampment of the militia officers and others at
Xenia; the large Union Meeting at Springfield,
both at the same time ot the fair, with other
influences of an unjustifiable character, were
very discouraging, and rendered the prospects
for a successful Fair very poor. Yet the result
has proved that a steady perseverance in the
right will always be successful with the people.
W e would here, with vour permission, thank
the exhibitors, members and visitors tor the
noble manner in which thev have sustained their
Society. The Society, not bein" a joint stock
concern for the purpose of making money, but
emphatically- the people's, to them is due all
praise for the continued success. In the m'ulat
of all this discouragement you, gentlemen of
the Board, resolved to hold the Fair, and the
success ot the late one, just closed,, has- proved
the wisdom of your course. The beneficial in
fluence of the Society is to be seen in the in
creased interest of the people in the annual exhibitions.-
Permit us, gentlemen, to call vour attention
to one part of the exhibition that, we think,
it would be well to foster with particular atten
tion and care, viz.: the trial of plows and plow
ing. As good plows and plowmen are the
foundation on which the whole fabric of agri
culture is reared, it ought to be encouraged by
increased premiums and more perfect arrange
The exhibition of horses is believed to have
been better than on any former occasion. . The
entrance of thorough-bred cattle was not so nu
merous as at former fairs, but the quality was
fully up to the former exhibitions. Sheep and
swine were well represented, but, for the want
of covered sheds, many were removed (with
permission) at the close of the first day, conse
quently the visitors on the two last days had
not an opportunity to see all that were on exhi
bition. Mechanics' Hall, for the location, was
well represented, and Floral Hall ia all the
classes was better filled than last year.
Financially, the Fair is a complete success.
We do not know the exact amount of the cash
receipts, but it will not vary far from $ i,'J50.
We would also sav that the chief of police re
ports better order and less drunkenness than at

Union Meeting at New Burlington.
The Basket Meeting at New Burlington on
Saturdav, the 5th inst., was a most spirited af
fair, and we are not without hopes of beneficial
results. It cannot be that so large an audience,
so attentive, so intelligent, can listen for four or
five hours to such speeches as were made on
that occasion, without being at least animated,
encouraged and "built up in their most holy
taitn. Early in the morning the sturdy yeo
manry commenced to roll in from the '.'rural
districts," and by 10 o'clock the beautiful grove,
in the northern edge of the village, was alive
with sovereigns and their families. M. r. bad-
dis was on hand to adtlress them. Our readers
have all heard M. P. Gaddis they know his
power. 'Tis enough to say that, tor two hours,
he enchained the large audience with one of his
best efforts. He was followed bv the Basket
Dinner and sucA a dinner! Well, we did am
ple justice to it when it was before us, but we
can't now in the wav of description. After din
ner, "the feast of reason and the flow of soul'
was resumed bv Colonel E. F. Noves. of Cin
cinnati. Colonel Ji. is one of the most solid in
thoughts and most brilliant in words of all the
speakers on the stump in this campaign. His
effort on this occasion was most h.ipr W
have no hesitation in saying that it surpassed
anything of the kind tliat we have listened to
for years. It took all hearts by storm, and it
left such an impression on all present as to
make this meeting a memorable occasion.

Correspondence of the Xenia Sentinel.
Andebsos Station, Tens., September 1.
On yesterday afternoon the members of
94th 0. V. I. w ere notified that in the
there would be a meeting for the purpose of
their views on some of the
topics of the day. Accordingly, at about 6 P.
they assembled in frout of Major Hutcheus'
quarters, the band playing the "Red, White
Blue;" all evidently determined to express
views in such a manner as to leave no doubt
to the position taken by the 94ih on the
ot mends at Home.
Tiie meeting was organized by calling Captain
otewart, company A, to the Lhair, and Adjutant
aherloclc was appointed .secretary. Captain
then, in a few remarks, stated the object that
ii.nl called us together. A motion to appoint
committee to draft resolutions was then carried,
when the Chair named the following gentlemen:
Assistant Surgeon Wm. B. Gibson, Sergeant
George W. Crane, Co. I; Captain C. C. Gibson,
Co. G; Sergeant John G. McPberson, Co.
Captain John W. Ford, Co. D.
After the committee bad retired, Dr. Sinnet
was loudly called upon for a speech. He made
a few happy and pertinent remarks, in which
set forth clearly the position taken by both
parties at home; showed that the present wick
ed and unnecessary rebellion was instigated
the base and selfish motives of aristocrats who
had been for years determined to establish
more monarchical form of government upon the
icil of our free Republic; that Vallandigham.
as shown by his record, has for years been the
co-operator of these base and unprincipled des
pots; that be had persistently used every means
in his power, both in and out of Congress,
thwart the good intentions of our Government
in pulling down this rebellion; that he had
shown himself awfully ignorant of the wishes
Southern men, or else the veriest hypocrite,
declaring that there is not a man or woman
the South who desire to return to the old Union;
that he refused to vote money or thanks to our
armies in the field; and that he declares that
peace can only be obtained by withdrawing our
armies lrom their victorious fields, and submit
ting to such terms as Rebels in arms may choose
to advance; thus in all his career exhibiting the
most marked sympathy with those in arms
against us. He also pointed out the palpable
inconsistency of the peace party in the North
in encouraging men to enlist and then with
holding from them that assistance they so much
deserve while facing the enemy and braving the
dangers of the field, and especially in refusing
tnat material aid promised dependent families
at home. The unhappy and melancholy effect
of their despicable course upon the sick and
wounded of the army was illustrated by the
reports of cases well calculated to raise the in
dignation of every one present. The Doctor's
remarks were well received. At their conclu
sion, the committee reported the following preamble
Wheeeas, our fellow citizens of Ohio are now

cheering. Some one remarking that the report
was in circulation at home that the votes of the
men were controlled by the officers. Sergeant
Cross immediately introduced the following re
Resolved, That we, enlisted men of the 94th
0. V. I., cannot find language sufficiently strong
to express our contempt for those who would
give out the impression that our votes are con
trolled by our officers. We are thinking men,
aud claim and have the right to use our suffrage
free and unmolested,
Vhich was unanimously adopted, with round
after round of applause. Capt. Edmonds of
company "C" was then called upon to make a
speech. 1 he Captain said that we had borne
tne bruut and beat of this war, that we hau
stood as a wall of fire between Vallandigham,
his family, his friends, and "war's desolation:"
that Vallandigham had, in '60, promised to vote
not a man, not a dollar to the suppression of
this rebellion, and well. had he kept his promise.
He now has the shameless impudence to ask to
be placed in possession of the highest office in
the gift of the people of Ohio, and that, too,
with your help. Will you give the craven-hearted
traitor your votes, your assistance? (No!
no! never;" a voice in the crowd "we'd rather
hang him. ; He asks you to give up all you
have gained in so many a well fought battle, to1
let Southern chivalry dictate to you the terms
of peace. Is there a heart here so craven, so
cowardly that he says aye? (No! nol not one.)
The Captain concluded by remarking that our
regiment .had no newspaper popularity that
our reputation was of a inherent sort but that
it was well for us to let our friends at home
know in what light we regard the measures of
the "tried and convicted traitor," who seeks to
place himself at the head of power in Ohio.
Lieut. Patterson concluded with a few perti
nent remarks. "
The meeting then adjourned with much good
feeling. Cheer after cheer was given for the

Greene County Fair.
The 27th Annual Fair of the Greene.County
Agricultural Society will be held in its beauti
ful grounds in Xenia, on Tuesday, Wednesday,
and Thursday of this week, being the 8th, 9th,
and 10th days of September. The ground are
large, beautiful, and well arranged for recep
tion, distribution and exhibition of the various
animals, products of the "farm, the loom and
the anvil," and everything else intended for,
or expected to be, at such a Fair. The premi
um list is a long one. The premiums offered
a:o very liberal. The Committees are well se
lected, and under the management of the en
terprising and gentlemanly officers of the So
ciety, with the co-operation of the producing
classes, the citizens generally, and the ladies
particularly, we believe that this Fair will, as it
ought to, be a success. This Society, its aims
and ends, do not setm to be fully appreciated.
It should be better sustained than it has here
tofore been by the people of the county.
"Then rally round the" Society, and make it
something of which we, the people of Greene
county, can afford to be proud. In its peculiar
mission let it be not excelled.

acceptance," however, two conditions have been
made, which it is believed Mr. Chase will
scarcely acceed to. - . .. j
First, the banks wish the treasury notes to I
run one, two or three years, whereas it has been
deemed absolutely essential to the financial
safety of the issue that one year will be the ex
treme count; Seermd, the banks stipulate that

notes, tho remaining $:15G,000,000 which are

Should the loan fail td be negotiated, it is
urged that Mr. Chase will be easily able to re
plenish the Treasury during the next two
months by the issue of the 5-20s, and if neces
sary, a small amount of ordinary currency. An
amount fully adequate may, by these means,
be issued without any serious derangement to
tne general financial interests of the country.

REBEL GUEREILLAS SAID TO BE AT COLUMBUS,
WASHINGTON, September 6.
The statement made by the Times that Quar
termaster General Meigs had been removed, by
being sent into exile, on Inspection duty, is true.
The statement made by us that the Chief of
Ordnance Bureau had also been removed, is
likewise true. Another great Bureau of the
War Department will soon have young blood
injected into its administration.
A New Orleans letter, dated August 28, to
tlie World, describes the military and political
situation in the Department of the South. The
movement on Mobile had undoubtedly been
abandoned. No indications of such a movement,
and the situation of affairs in the Army and
Navy seemed to preclude the possibility ot it.
Preparations, however, are going forward sug
gesting a new and interesting campaign.
The Confederate forces who, since the evacu
ation of Brasbear City had not been idle on the
other side of the Bay and along the Teche, were
understood to be concentrated far an offensive
raid or invasion through tliat part of Louisiana
supposed to be held by our forces. The Rebel
forces were gathered at St. Martinville, New
Iberia, Franklin and Camp Brlsiand. The plan
of the Rebel campaign, as stated by deserters,
contemplates marching into Lafourche, once
conquered by Weitzel and again recently in the
hands of Gen. Banks.

The War with Japan Commenced.
SAN FRANCISCO, September 6.
Dates from Japan to the 24th'of July are re
ceived. On the 15th of July, (he English ship
Medusa, bound from Legassaki to Kanagawa,
by the island passage, was attacked by some
forts and vessels that had previously bred on
the American ship Pembroke. The Medusa re
ceived twenty-four shots and was much injured.
She had tour men killed and six wounded. She,
in return, destroyed one fort, and proceeded to
Kanagawa on the 20th of July.
The American steamer Wyoming arrived at
Kanagawa, from a trip to punish To Daino
whose vessels and forts fired on the Pembroke.
The Wyoming reported that she had done her
work well, having blown up the Japanese
steamer Lancefield, silenced nearly all the neigh
boring forts, leaving the Lourch in a sinking
condition. The Wyoming received twenty
shots, and had five killed and six wounded, when
she deemed it prudent to proceed to Kanagawa
on the 24th.
Admiral Jurez in the Semirami3, returned to
Kanagawa, reported having arrived with the
Semiramis on the previous Monday, in the Simi
owoscoki Straits. JThe Lanced received fire
from the batteries, which, with tlie forts, were
then bombarded for about three hours. One
hundred and fifty troops landed, and the forts,
batteries and town were destroyed, the guns
spiked, powder magazines blowed up, and the
village burned. - Little lighting was shown by
Japanese after being shelled out, principal
from behind trees and jutting points of rocks.
Two thousand men were reported descending
toward the ships, but would not attempt to pass
range of the guns: Nothing was seen of
Lanced and Lancefield, but tiie topmasts of
sunken ship were thought to have been seen.
The casualties were three wounded.

HAMILTON, O., Sept. 2, 1863.
ereat satisfaction the ra
pid organization of the Miiitia of the State since
the Morgan' Raid, I thought a short visit to
Camp Butler, where the "Brave Volunteers'
were learning the art of war, would be both
pleasant and profitable to--vour correspondent
who formerly carried the musket in the famous
seventh, ot iNew XorK. Arriving at Camp, 1
met Colonel Len. A. Harris, of the 7th O. V".
M., at his Headquarters, who, astherankinz
Colonel of this District, as well as of the State
Militia, was in command. His duties durintr
eight days have been arduous, and to the eye of
one who bas seen a tittle ot war, it seemed that
they had been faithfully performed.
Any skeptic in regard to whether the people
of Ohio will make practical its Militia laws in
future, will drop his doubts after seeing the suc
cess of Camp Butler, in all respects. If the va
rious encampments throughout the State devel
op as much military talent and ardor as has
been the case at this camp, the enemies of the
republic may not hope for much comfort irom
the Buckeye State. All seemed filled with a
desire'to learn, that they might be of service
when needed, to assist in repelling an insolent
foe, either external or internal, who strikes at
the life of the nation. Your readers will be
more interested in particulars pertaining to the
volunteer force from Cincinnati; though I can
not do justice to the Militia, of the country with
out saying that they have done nobly, both in
organizing the volunteer system and in drilling
the same. Many a regiment now in the field,
after months of experience, cannot surpass the
movements of the 6ist O. ViM , of Butler coun
ty. Colonel Tom. Moore commanding ; and in
numbers it surpassed any of the volunteer or
ganizations on the ground.
The enrolled militia of this city was command
ed bv Captain Emerson, assisted by Lieutenant
H. I? Carpenter, who acted as Adjutant of the
Battalion. The Seventh, Eighth, Ninth, and
Tenth regiments, of O. V. M., commanded res
pectively bv Lieut.-Coloncl Finch, Colonels
Fisher, A. E. Jones, and Poerschner, made
good records for themselves, reflecting much
credit upon their field and line officers for the
advanced state of drill and discipline to which
they have already attained after so short an or
ganization. On Tuesday Colonel Fisher commanded the
Brigade, it being reviewed by Colonel Harris
and Staff. It was an imposing sight.
There is a healthy rivalry already perceptible
among our regiments, which will ere long devel
op a force in the Queen City which will make all
rebels and rioters keep quiet.
There is no denying that when a soldier is
thoroughly uniformed and armed he feels like a
soldier, and will make a better one than he that
is but half outfitted. No regiment on the ground
was so fortunate as the Seventh in its appearance
as Colonel Harris had, some weeks previous,
ordered all the men and officers to uniform
themselves, r.ot awaiting the tardy action of
military committees, composed of citizens, to do
what ought to have been done weeks since for
our whole volunteer force, as there are many
noble fellows who can illy afford to give both
time and monev to learn to become soldiers to
do the rich man's fighting as well as his own in
case ol necessity.
The drill of the Seventh on Tuesday after
noon, by Lieut.-Colonel Finch, Btamped him as
an able soldier, and the regiment as a great suc
cess, considering that it was the first battalion
drill since its present organization and by their
Tuesday morning Colonel Harris drilled the
seventh in many new movements, to them ; the
several columns and square formations, aud the
various deployments were executed with mark
ed ability, showing that if "Excelsior" is the
motto of the seventh, it will ere long be hard
to surpass in drill. We noticed that both
Colonels Harris aud Finch were very particular
in urging upon the men that only the olUcrs
should do the talking when on duty, a.nd that uo
smoking or unsteadiness in the ranis tven to the
lifting of a finger would be allowed, that all
should appear uniform iu appearance throu-h-out,

we mean to say a portion of them met, consist
ing of the unterrified Vailandighamers, for there
were few others who thought it incumbent upon
them to visit the grove at the ancient city of
Carthage were Democracy was wont to run
rampant, causing a scarcity of Old Bourbon,
and raising tlie price ot pure unadulterated rot-
gut. A convention at Carthage used to mark
an era in the politics of the couiitv, and a Car
thage nomination was about equivalent to an
election, but "times are not now as thev used to
was," and we failed to observe at the Conven
tion, yesterday, the old familiar faces which
were wont to smile as they beheld the frreit
gatherings of the unterrified. Thev were nonesi.

The report of the Committee on Resolutions
was quite lengthy, and we are necessarily com
pelled to give only its main features which" we do
in a nut-shell: -

of all conscripts which, of course, cue City
Council will do in a horn.
Laments over the extreme noverty of the
National Treasury. Indorses Vallandigham
and Pugh, and in the next breath sympathize
with the soldiers in the field.
Of course the resolutions were received with
appropriate cheers particularly those which
endorsed Vallandigham and Push.
We have no space to crive all the funny things
that were said and done. Suffice it to say the
Vailandighamers had it all their own way, and
the following was the result of the Herculean
labors of the Convention.

that his decision on the habeas corpus
