FOR CONGRESS, 4 LTDXL SHELLAEABC WW roa ri.rcTOF, H. W. SMITH. Sheridan's great Victory. Our readers will find in our paper to-day a number of cSeial war bulle tins, which give quite a lull account of the recent great victory won by General Sheridan in the Shenandoah Valley. It ia certainly one of the grandest Union successes of the war. The prisoners captured number 5000, and at this writing (Friday, 22nd) more are said to be constantly arn ring. The rebel soldiers retreated ia the wildest confusion, throwing away their arms and scattering into the mountains. It is reported and we hare the best evidence fjr believ ing it that General Easly cr.n not bring his army to another stand this side of Richmond. This victory not only clears the Shenandoah Valley of rebels, but it is a direct blow for the fall of the Confederate capital itself. It is glorious news. Let loy al people svery where rejoice and thank God. The Clouds Break! There is abundant cause for loyal rejoicing to-day. In the first place, the military prospect is of the most en couraging character. General Sher man sits securely in Atlanta, , and writes from theie that "all U well." The whole state of Georgia is open to cur farther advance. Ilis lost to the rebels, and thus the Confederacy is once more cut in two. There is some thing grand aboutthe maimer in which .cur western armies have gone on, "con auerinz and to conquer," from the first tiay ot tee war. it seems dui a snort , time since General Bragg's army drove that of General Buell even up to the very banks of the Ohio river. But how cow? Such successes as have crowned tho Union arms have rarely perched upon the banner of any army in the world. Kentucky is free Missouri is free the Missis sippi is open Tennessee is free, and now, our army sits securely enthroned in the very heart of Georgia, from which point no army ia the Cofedera cy can drive it. If we turn to the eastern military Sold, the prospect is not less bright. Tho Shenandoah Valley, by Sheridan's great victory, ia ours, and General Grant, at Rich mond, with an army that i3 being con stantly reenforceJ, is almost master of the situation. It is reported, on good authority, that Lee's army is not now more than forty thousand strong, and tho late rebel papers from Richmond arc most despondent in tone. And then, outside of tho military fields, there are most encouraging pros Beets. The draft is bcin? enforced vi'i.o.' r.r.i :?r i.'-; will thus be made most overwhelmingly strong, while the Confederate armies must grow weaker every day, becauso, as General Grant graphically express es it, the rebels have robbed the cradle and the grave to get their present ' force."' And even those armies which are left to them are being sadly weak ened by desertion. Rebel papers in form ns that the whole state of Georgia is overrun with rebel deser tors. And while the common enemy is thus being beaten in the South, he ap pears to be on the downward road to defeat ia-the North. It seems now morally eevtam, that the Confederate candidate, McClellan and IVndleton, lll not carry a ?iu1-; state in ihe X-iV'W'' r rl.-.fiion. r.ivilf.r. in t'n a South, and beaten ia tha North, ear enemiei will ba beaten everywhere, and peace and prosperity will once more ccrae to an afEicted but piiried country. The Union Party of Greene County. Last year the Union party of Greene county, in regard to the lo cal ticket. dissatisfied, inharmo nious, divided. This year it is satisfied, harmonious and united. It is passing through this great, momentous polit ical campaign with all its members standing shoulder to shoulder as brothers in a common danger. Uni-. vcrsal gocd-feeling prevails, and for this we feel a roost genuine satisfac tion. Our Union people may all feel exultant and confident. The Union party of Greene county is a unit, and may it ever be. There was some feeling manifested, it is true, before the primary election, and especially in regard to the office of Auditor. We were not slow to say that we believed the wounded Boldier should be nominated. Rut the peo ple of the cou5,bj a small majori ty, decided contrary to our opinion. The voice of that majority wa3 law to us; not a law to be obeyed grudging ly and unwillinglyJbijfr a la f to be obeyed with the utmost willingness and cheerfulness. Our county ticket, throughout, is a good one; as such we endorsed it at the nomination as such we re-endorse it now. TTe have heard manj good men lamenting the differences that have heretofore divided ns. They indeed gave cause for regret, but we believe they are buried in the past to come up no more. We long since ceased to az itate the question of a year ago; and we cannot now conceive of the circum stances in which we would bring it up again. For U3, at least, "straight" is a title of the past; and so is "bolter." In cherishing old names, old divisions, old bitterness, no one of us has any- iaiiig to gain; iii so Uoinx we all have something to lose. A. Ul UC, 11 G UUl'A every man a3our political enemy who is an enemy to his country, and every man as our political friend who stands by his country in her hour of peril. These are our earnest opinions, by which we expect ever to be guided in furnishing a newspaper for the rea ders of the great Union party of our county. i The Last Hope of the Rebels. We publish to-day, on our first page, letter frum the Cincinnati Gazette, wrir ten by a gentleman who affirms only that which is within his own personal knowledge. lie states that lie has the most conclusive reasons for stating that the only present hope of the rebels is in the election of McClellan and Pendleton We refer our readers to the letter i'self. The rebels begin to foci and adroit, "that with their own resources alone, thaj can hold out but a short time longer. Atlan ta, which President Djym denominate J tho "military key cf the continent," hasfa In befire the unconquerable heroism of the Union soldiers. General Sheridan has defeated Early in the Shenandoah valley, and General Grant is every day receiv ing re-euforcements in front of Richmond. In this state cf things, it is not surpris ing that the rebels should begin to feel the utter hopelessness of their cause, and the futility of fur; her resistance to the Government of the United States. Dut thcieisone event that will save .' them, and that is tLe Euccess of the Chicago party. With that party in power a par ty which demands an immediate "cessa tion of bo-tiiit:es" the Confederacy would be at once recogr ized by our Gov ernment as an independent power. The rebels wiil endeavor to hold out until after the election. General Mc Clellan elected, their cause will be secure. President Lincoln re-clec'ed, their caufe will be regarded as utterly hopeless, and the Union will be saved for ourselves and for all the future. Render, for which do you vote, the Union or the Confederacy ? The Last Hope of the Rebels. unconditional Surrender. Ceneral McClellan's nice ta'k. about maintaining the Union, ia ODly intended to allure honest men in?o tho copperhead ranks. The real principles of the party are set forth in the platform adopt d at Chicago, in which it is declared that we have already had "fur years of failure" iu this war, and in which a demand is made for a "cessation of hostilities," and a "convention of all tho states," to the end that I ho war may be immediately stopped. The Chicago platform demands an "unconditional surrender," but not a surrender of rebels in arms sgainst the Government, but a surrender of the Government to those who are, intent upon its destruction. Had the delegates to the Chicago convention been desirous of telling the truth, in a brief space, their committee en resolution would simply line; -wrr'.r-n n.-phol ''j;,. til W- ara id favi r f tonvuderi" g the Gov ru trjent to Jefferson Dav a an 1 his as'Ciates." They mi aiit "surrender." why did they not say if, and n "thinj tUTe, nothing 1 ? Thiy must mean th'S'fMm the ver necessi ties 1 ftfe siiaa'i'ii.' T e Uid'in pf.r'y is the war party, nd the on'y war par y in the country ; and the democrats, be.ng opposed to it, must necessarily oppose the continuance of the war, and must there fore be for peace, for unconditi nal surren der to the reU's. Ge eral MeCltl'an is the eand.dute of thi? party ; he knew its avowed princip'ea b.fore it nv't iu con vention at Chicago, and its platform was sent by telegraph to hiin before he was nominated. He was satisfied with the platform, and so made known his vl ws to the convention. The radical peace dele gates of the western states submitted to the nomination of McC e lan only np 'n the express agri emeut' that he should, ifeleced, cairyout, t -the very letier, the piace plank of the p atf .rm, and his pretty talk dow, about Union, is only in tended as a cheat, whe"by honest men may be drawn in to his support. Let no honest man delude himself wi'h the false idea, that by vt'ting f r McCiell-m he is really voting for the war anJ the Unioo; on the contrary, by B" doing, he u voting ' for sunviid.T, dtunion, t!;e end of fie.; on this continent, anarchy , . and war fur many generations to cuiue. J fc The Commanding General at the Battle of Malvern Hill. During the sanguinary battle of Mai vi rn Hi'l, General McClellan took refugo in a gunhoat. This statement has been authenticated by so uiany reliable wit ness! s that it si en s u less fur the fru nds f the party CO; cerned rod ny it.

Secretary Chase. Secretary Chase declares for Lin coln and Johnson. Here is what lie said a few evenings ago-at a serenade to him in Washington: "I thank you for the compliment of this call. As I am not a man holding office, nor a candidate for office, I may without vanity regard this demonstra tion as a mark of personal good will, and of approval for services which it has been my fortune to render in times past. Since my return to the honorable position of a private citizen, I have thought that I was en titled to a short vacation of eight weeks, after unremitted labor for eight or nine years. I have returned among you for a brief period with re newed health und vigor. I propose soon to go to my own great State in the West and there to advocate the cause so dear to you all. I .believe you call yourself the Lincoln and Johnson Club. These names repre sent to us to-day tho principles, and purposes by which alono we believe thi3 country can bo saved. Of these principles I have been an earnest ad vocate, to use a legal phrase, for a length oftime, whereof the memorv of man runneth not to the contrary.
