OROVILLE, SATURDAY. JITNE 1L For President, in 1864. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. FOR VICE PRESIDENT, ANDREW JOHNSON, of Term. Our Standard-Bearers. A private dispatch to the Marysville Appeal announces the rencmiuation of Abraham Lin coln, of Illinois, for President of the United Stales, and Andy Johnson, of Tennessee, for Vice President. We will thus have the pleasure of continning at our mast head those two noble patriots and statesmen till they are doly elected, and inaugurated on the fourth of March next. The loyal people of California will bail with delight and enlhu-ia.-m this an nouncement, and an overwhelming majority will be cast for the choice of the Baltimore Convention. We have but room to say— Three cheers for Abe and Andy! The Dixie Doctor. — We copy an article from the American Flag, signed by many of the leading Union men of Oroville, giving the political history of the Dixie Doctor Eiwards now bolding the high position of Surgeon in the Union Army at Fort Point. The article speaks for itself, in plain and truthful terms, and its object cannot be misunderstood by the anthorilies. With such facts before them it would be unreasonable to suppose that an open enemy to our Government, and the place no doubt sought to render aid aud assistance to the Southern Confederacy, would for a mo ment be retained in any position by the Fede ral authorities. We have had too many trai tors in high places during the present rebellion and their treacherous influences have been thrown with telling effect against the interests and success of our advancing Union armies, as well as upon many a hard fought battle field. With a practical demonstration of such fads in the past, should be a warning iu the future. And au open enemy iu power ami place, pro ven to be such, if not immediately removed, evidently exhibits a rottenness among the powers that be. “Democratic” Eloquence. —That “loyal" sheet, the Amador Dispatch, says the Mariposa Gazette, devotes seven columns to the publi cation of a “Constitutional Democratic" speech recently delivered at Wilkesboro, North Ca rolina, by Governor Vance. The following eloquent passage w ill serve to show what kind of reading Union Democratic papers consider most acceptable to their patriotic patrons : “And the bones of the Yankees that bleach on the bills of Northern Virginia, if piled in a row would make a macadamized road from Kicbmond to Washington over which the ar tillery of the Southern Confederacy could roll between the two ciiles. [Applause] We kuow that notwithstanding the immense levies made recently at the North, Gen. Meade is afraid of Gen. Loo, and skulks within his forti- Stations. If he makes no more progress to wards Richmond than he has (or some time past, he will not reach that goal of Yankee hope before twelve o'clock on doomsday. Grant and Lee on Strategy. —At noon on the 11th of May, Lee, having learned that our General Sheridan had destroyed eight miles of the Orange and Alexandria Railroad, and that perhaps our cavalry had also paid their respects to the Virginia Central and the Fredericksburg and Richmond roads, thus cutting the main rebel army from its base of supplies, and leaving it where it must either retreat or starve, sent in a flag of truce, asking a cessation of hostili ties for forty eight hours to enable him to bury the dead. Grant knew the rebel. He returned a characteristic reply, the exact text of which has not yet come to hand, staling that he had not time to bury his own deadend would advance immediately. Grant’s First Proposition and His Last. The New York Times of May loth says ; At the opening of General Grant’s military career at Fort Donelson, he sent a proposition to Gen. Buckner, who had requested a cessation of hostilities after two days’ fighting, in these words: “1 propose to move immediately upon your works.” We have bad but few other propositions from him till now, when he makes another after six days’ fighting : “I propose,” says he, ‘‘to fight it out on this line, if it takes all Summer.” Both of these proposals are very cool, but terribly determined. The New York Gerald's Mexican corres pondent says the Juarez Government is per feclly established at Monterey. The Liberals, more than 40,000 strong, are preparing to march on San Luis Potosi. The French and imperialists have been completely routed, and there is great enthusiasm for the National cause. The Imperial honors of the Austrian Archduke appear to have about reached their Maxi mum, and French hopes their Mmie-mum. If they haven’t, they will when Uncle Sam gets after them with the Monroe doctrine. The Industrial Fair.— The Call say? the forthcoming Industrial Fair, to be held in San Francisco, commencing ou the 30th of August next, under the direction of the Mechanics’ Institute, will doubtless be a success. The Committee who have in charge promise that it shall be more attractive and useful than any similar aflair which has been held. The pavillion will be built on Union Squaft, which is bounded by Stockton, Post, Powell and Geary streets, and it is expected will be ready (or the reception of articles for exhibition on the 32d of August. Tuk Supreme Court of Vermont has declared that the law of that State conferring on soldiers the right to vo'e is unconstitutional so far as it relates to State officers, bat constitutional as it relates to the President and members of Congress. That consummate old political bummer. Jo. Lane, is on the saamp in Oregon tor the Cop perhead ticket. He still declares that bis only hope for the salvation of the country is “iu Jod and a Southern Onion." C. R. Street, editor of the Marysville Ex press has had a surgical operation performed upon his foot by Dr. Tolaud. It was caused by a sprain received several months since by his jumping from a wagon. Within a week, three men have been killed at Virginia City, by fa’lirg icfo tn'r’rg stab? Democracy. The present party calling itself Democratic serves only to remind one of those great con vulsions in the materia! or moral world, when from the genera! wreck and crash there remains but the debris of former existences, all strewn in indistinguishable confusion around and about —tbe mere vestiges of former worlds and or ganizations—tbe mere mementoes of former greatness, vanished and gone forever. Of how many was it once the pride to vaunt that they were Democrats—Democrats to the back bone Democrats "dyed in the wool," and Demo crats even from their mother's womb and tbe milk they drew from their mother's breast. To such base uses has Democracy come at last that those who always opposed Democrats and Democracy as it has been known in the party annals of America, take a delicious pleasure in calling them "Democrats and tbe Democracy,’’ and allow that they are "Demo crata and the Democracy indeed.” They point at them as they pass, with the finger of scorn, and say "these are Democrats” and "this is Democracy,” even as the Whigs of tbe Revo lution were wont to point at the toriea of that day, when the United States bad achieved their independence- Democracy in its true sense means "the rights of man,” and as it has been exemplified in the party annals of the past, is associated with many glorious recollec tions, and much of national glory, alloyed, it is true, with imperfections incident to all things human, but, after all. a thing not to be ashamed of. But alack and alas, look at tbe thing calling itself Democracy, today! What and where are its principles, and who are its fol lowers? Why, Federalists, Whigs, Know- Nothings, Aristocrats in a large proportion, Monarchists, and the fag ends of all the "isms” that have ever figured in politics ; and, to cap the whole, now comes Fremont, John Cochrane, Wendell Phillips—the “woolly horse” and all. The ‘ Democrats" now assume a patronizing air towards Fremont and the "Radical Democ racy,” even as the Devil recommended Eve to eat of the apple of the tree of life. But what do these Democrats agree in 7 In nothing but one thing—that is, "Good Lord or good Devil, save, oh! save the nigger!” No two of these Democrats agree in anything but that. Some say the States are absolutely sovereign and independent, and the General Government was and is but the agent of the State sovereignties, and the Stales have a vested right to secede when and how they please. And these fellows insist lhat the Constitution guaranties slavery in the Slates.' That is to say, the Government of tbe Lnited States, which has not a particle of sovereignty, guaranties to a State which has sovereignty a certain right, to wit: tbe right of slavery; which is very much like John Smith guaranteeing that England shall observe its present treaty stipulations wiih France and other sovereign powers. Another set thinks that a Stale has not exactly the right to secede, but then the States are sovereign, and can do pretty much as they please. Tbe Stales, being sovereign, are under no obligations to anybody, and if they kick up a bloody row. why things are so constituted that the States were responsible for nothing, but they insist upon holding the Genetal Government which they say has no more sovereignly than John Smith oranyotber man responsible for everything. They hold lhat the seceded Stales are in the Union, in contemplation of law, and that the rights of those States and Ihe people thereof, shall be and remain unimpaired, and condemn war, coercion, subjugation, etc., as unconstitutional, and pile mountains of wrath upon tbe Admin istration therefor But not a word have they to say against Jeff Davis and his proceedings, not a single word. They talk by the mile, about u petty order of Beast Butler, but a full hundred thousand of the most atrocious, cold blooded savage and inhuman murderers, and assassinations of prisoners and non-combat tants including men, women and children committed under the patronage of Jeff Ilavis, and bv his direct advice and instigation, they never say a word about, and thus indirectly approve of it, and thus approving of it. are accessories after the fact. This is the character of the present Democracy. Their usual assertion is “they have nothing to do with Jeff Davis;” but how is it if these States in rebellion are legally in tbe Union they have nothing to do with the atrocities committed by Jeff Davis in those States? They seem to have everything to do if a nigger in those States is used by the Administration against Jeff Davis. Then they will talk you deaf and dumb and blind about “impaired rights.” The grand chorus of the whole latter day Democracy is “Good Lord, good devil save the Nigger ! ” A Nest of Snakes.— The Gold Hill News presents the following doleful picture of the broken down California politicians who have taken refuge in silver land : On each warm afternoon they writhe in and out among each other in a slimy mass along the whole sunny side of J street. The student of political zoology cau there suit himself with a snake to bis fancy. They arc there to be seen of every age and of evory hue of copper, from those of a bran-new tea kettle down through the emerald verdigris to dark and rusty corrosion. Dead and damned politically in their old California stamping ground, they have crawled over the Sierras tosnn themselves on its eastern slope. They have not, however, lost all that crafty political shrewdness which once made them mighty men in the land. They are. moreover, most of them dead broke. A weary term of years out of office has made the grass mighty short, and things are getting desperate. They must have office or they are gone in. Tbe approaching Constitutional Convention opens the only door visible for them to obtain a seat in the councils and a finger in the pie of Government. Under snch circum stances, it is natural to expect that they should make a desperate straggle. That they will endeavor to do so is beyond doubt. Let Union men be on their guard. Jeff Davis. —Among the wonders at the Sanitary Fair, in New York, was a rebel blood hound bearing tbe name of Jeff Davis. Tbe bound, which is about four years old. was captured by tbe Thirty Second Wisconsin Regiment in the recent raid of Gen. Sherman, at Meridian, Alabama. It was wounded by a gunshot, by which one of its tusks was broken off ar.d tbe tongue nearly severed. He is said to be a good watch at night, but at other times gentle. Jeff, and His Friends.— Jtff. Davis' last anneal message has just been received. He is very severe upon the Governments of France and England, which be accuses of a breach of faith in refusing to recognize his Confederacy; and he indulges in a distant threat to attend to their cases, after he shall have disposed of the "foreign government that is now endeavoring to coerce him into submission. Ons Captain ilson, of Kentuckv, is said to have saved bis life and killed seven guerrillas with a Henry's repeating rifle. He then raised a company of volunteers, which the State armed with these rifles. Tits Provost Marshals of California have returned as enrolled and liable to be conscripted for service in the army, 127,000 men. This is marly a third of 'he pepctaticc of 'he S'afe Hem of the Week. The Federal armies continue to press the rebels closely, with encouraging prospects of an early triumph. Below ar® the latest dis patches from the East : The Times' correspondent seeds a lengthy and detailed account of the operations of Fri day, showing that the move was one of the most important of the campaign, being an attempt to posh the rebels back fn m their position on this side of the Chickahominy; but it failed, though our army was advancing to a new position. The key of the poiol Secured by Barlow's and Gibbon's divisions was wrested from them by an overwhelming rebel reserve, in a strong hoe. The Herald says: On Friday, the Sght was brief and bloody, but a brilliant victory for the Fifth Corps. A James river correspondent says ; The iron clad fleet moved op abreast of Butler's right wing, which is intrenched on the Penin sola formed by the Appomattox and James rivers, and east of the Richmond and Peters burg Railroad, which road our army has been able to reach with recently mounted guns. Under date of Washington. June 7th, Sec retary Stanton sends the following: “Dis patches from the Army of the Potomac, dated nine o’clock this morning, have been received. An assault was made on Burnside about mid night, and was successfully repulsed. Yester day afternoon, a hundred picked men of the enemy made a rush to End oot what was the meaning of Hancock's advancing his siege gnns. Nine of the party were captured, and the rest were tilled or driven back.” The New York Times special, under date of June Bth, says: In the rebel attack on Sunday, the right of the rebels made an assault just after dark on the front of Smith's brigade of the Second Corps. The whole lower stratum of atmosphere was dense with mist, and under cover of this fog the enemy advanced in strong lines of battle, and succeeded in reaching a point within pistol range of our works before they were discovered by the advance pickets No sooner did the outposts give the alarm than one sheet of fire burst forth from our ranks on the front and both flanks of the enemy. In half an hoar he was back, leaving the ground covered with dead and wounded. Our loss was small. Brigadier General Barnard to day took the position as Chief Engineer of the army. The Herald’s correspondence from the Eigh teenth Corps is as follows : Our line runs nearly parallel to the Cbickabominy. but its main direction is exceedingly irregular for the entire length. Our right is formed by Burnside's Corps, the cenier by Wright's, and Ihe left by Hancock's. Another correspondent says: Large rein forcements arrived this (Sunday) evening. The reinforcements outnumber our losses. More are coming. A Richmond paper of June 3d says that on Friday Ihe assaults made by Grant on the right of the rebel line, held by Renshaw, Hakes and Breckenridge, were all repulsed with great slaughter. It puts our loss from 10.000 to 20.000, with 1,000 prisoners—their men escaping almost unharmed ; but acknowledges that we gained a partial success against Breck enridge, but the rebels subsequently recovered the ground. The Richmond Sentinel further says Grant’s object was to gain a strong posi tion around Gaines' Mill, and open Ihe road to Bottom's Bridge and connect with Butler. His object was signally defeated. Our men are busily engaged in digging towards the enemy's works; the attack of Sun day night was by one of our working parties. Dispatches from Dallas, Georgia, of June 3d, say : The enemy made seven distinct charges on McPherson's lines, last night, making desperate efforts each time to gain the works. The first charge was made along the whole line. The other charges were made along the center, held by Sweeney's division of Dodge’s corps, and Osterhaus’ division of Logan's corps. Ihe rebels were repulsed with terrible slaughter. Our men never yielded an inch. The enemy advanced so suddenly that our skirmishers could not reach the main line, and accordingly lay on the ground and allowed the rebels to pass over them. Two companies of the Sixty ninth Illinois remained out all night. In this way they were sometimes behind the rebel lines, and sometimes between two lines. They report that the enemy advanced heavy columns, and suffered terribly from our fire, but carried off most of their dead and wounded as they fell. Some of our outlying skirmishers were killed and captured. A Cincinnati dispatch of June Stli says: A rebel force, supposed to be under the command of John Morgan, made their entrance into Eastern Kentucky, a few days ago. This morning they captured Ml. Sterling. They also destroyed bridges and tore up the track of the Central Railroad between Cynlbiana and Paris, and cut the telegraph wires. Another gang attacked the passenger train on the Lou isville and Lexington Railroad, this morning, near Smiibfitld. Two passenger ears and a baggage car were burned, the express car robbed, and the engine thrown off the track. None of Ihe passengers were hurt. The New York Commercial says Secretary Chase is in the city in consultation with bank ers. with the object of effecting a temporary loan immediate.y. The amount he desires to borrow is stated to be $50,000.000. The Post says that the anticipation that the payment of the loan will make money so stringent as to produce a panic, is not likely to be realized. At the Treasury, today. Chase, in concert with Cisco and the leading financial institutions, are making such arrangements as will effectu ally prevent any such disturbance. Narrow Escape of General Hitler from being Capttred by Beatregarp.—Washing ton correspondence of May 9th says: A bearer of dispatches from Major General Butler to the Preaident arrived here this after noon, and he subsequently made a statement in presence of the Joint Committee on the Con duct of the War and Senate Military Commit tee. He stales that, on Saturday last. Beau regard. with 7.000 men, mode a surprise attack upon General Butler, about 10 miles from Richmond. So sudden and unexpected was the encounter that Gen Butler himself narrowly escaped capture. Indeed, his own orderly was captured within sixty yards of him. The com mand being in readiness, it quickly passed from the defensive to the offensive position, and the enemy were most signally defeated. Mitint.— Passengers who arrived at San Francisco, on the Stb. by the steamer Consti tutioo, report that 250 seamen, who were transferred from Ihe army to the raw bv a recent act of Congress, were sent on the Ocean Queen from New York, to be distributed among the naval stations in the Pacific. When two days onf. they mutinied, attemp'ing to capture the steamer. The ifficers shot two of ihe ringleaders, and quieted the mutiny. The passengers were armed and stood guard the balance of the voyage. While crossing the Isthmus, ten of them stampeded from the cars, were recaptured, bat two were shot dead in this attempt. Washington correspondence states that the Overland Mail is in danger of being discontin ued after the 30th of Jnne, when the contract expires ; that the company would not be able to perform the contract for $1,000,000, owing to the increased cost of feed and higher rates for labor. The woodwork of the Comanche was dis charged from the Aqnila, Tuesday morning. It has been imbedded in the mud. and it nnin jered by 'he wcrirs. The National Union Convention. Baltimore. Jane 7th.—The National Union Cooreotioo assembled this morning in the Front Street Theater. Nearly six hundred Delegates were present, including many from remote Terri lories. New Mexico has sect a Delegate. Hoc. E. D. Morgan, Chairman of the Na tional Committee, called the ConTentioo to order at noon, making a brief address. He proposed Dr. Breckenndge. of Kentucky, as temporary Chairman. The announcement was received with great applause, which was re newed on his (Dr. B.) taking the Chair. Dr. Brtckenridge returned thanks for the honor in a brief and eloquent speech. He explained the considerations which induced him to attend the Convention. R. U. Duer. of New York, and M. C. Briggs, of California, were appointed tempo rary Secretaries. Dr. Riley invoked the Divine blessing on the proceedings of the Convention. On motion of Simon Cameron, a list of States was called, in order that the Secretaries might be tarnished with the names of delegates present. As the Slates were called, each del egation sent the Secretary a roll containing the names of the delegates. Mr. Stevens moved that, if any delegates were present from Slates in secession, the names of such delegates should be submitted to a Committee on Credentials, but that the Stales be not called 'i his was opposed by Lane, of Kansas, and Maynard, of Tennessee. After a lengthy debate, a motion to call the names of all the States prevailed, including the motion of Lane, that the Territo ries of Colorado. Nevada and Nebraska be added, as these Territories were now organizing Slate Governments by the Enabling Act, and would vole as States at the next Presidential election. Other Territories were then called, and all found to be represented. On motion, the rules of the House of Repre sentatives were adopted to govern the Con vention. On motion of Mr. Lane, of Kansas, all the States except Missouri, which bod sent two sets of delegates, were called, the name ol one member to comprise a Committee on Creden tials, John Bid well, of California, and Hiram Smith, of Oregon, to represent those States in the Committee. The States were again called to name a Committee to select permanent officers, in like manner. The Committee on Resolutions selected 'Thompson Campbell, of California, and Peter H. Pearne. ot Oregon, they being chosen members of the Committee from those Slates. 'The Convention adjourned at 3 o’clock. Evening Session. —'The Convention reassem bled at seven o’clock. The Committee on Permanent Organization reported for President of the Convention, Hon. Wm. Dennison, of Ohio, with one Vice President from each Slate; among them were James Otis, of California, and J. W. Southern, of Oregon. 'The report of the Committee was accepted with enthusi astic applause. 'The Committees on Credentials and Resolu tions not being ready to report, the Convention was addressed by Parson Brownlow. After his speech, the Convention adjourned till 10 o’clock to morrow. Baltimore. June B—'The Convention re assembled at 10 o’clock this morning. President Dennison, ex Governor of Ohio, in the chair. Prayer was offered by the Rev. Mr. Geddes. of Ohio. The Committee on Order of Business reported, and, after amendments were made, the report was adopted. Mr. King, of New York, Chairman of the Committee on Credentials, made a majority report that the Missouri Radicals be admitted; that the Arkansas delegates be admitted to seats, without the right of voting; that the South Carolina delegates be not admitted ; and those from the District of Columbia be admitted to scats, without votes. The minority made a report which concurred with that of the majority except as to the ex clusion of the delegates from Virginia and Arkansas, and the 'Territories of Colorado. Nevada and Nebraska from the right of voting. 'That part of the majority report which related to uncontesled delegates was adopted, and several amendments regarding the manner of the admission of the Missouri delegations were rejected. 'The question then recurred on the adoption of the majority report, admitting the Radical delegates from Missouri. [Here the dispatch abruptly terminates.] San Francisco, June 9. — From private telegrams, which were received in the city, ibis evening, we learn that the Convention yester day nominated, by acclamation, Abraham Lincoln for the next President, and Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, for Vice President. Union State .Central Committee.—At the meeting of this body in San Francisco. June 4th, the following resolutions were adopted: Resolved. That the Executive Committee of the State Central Committee be instructed to call, on or before the Ist day of July next, s State Conven tion, to be held in Sacramento on Tuesday, the 30th day of August next, for the purpose of nom inating Presidential Electors and appointing a State Central Committee; also to call Congres sional District Conventions in the following man ner: To call the Congressional District Conven tions for the First, Second and Third Districts tor the purpose of nominating candidates for Con gress for the respective Congressional Districts and the appointment of Congressional District Com mittees, to meet at Sacramento immediately after the adjournment of the Stale Convention; that in any county where the Union County Committees ot the county shall not order an election ot dele gates specially to the Congressional Convention tor its district to be held as aforesaid, or where dele gates to such Convention may not have been elec ted pnrsuant to notice of such County Committee, in case of the ordering of such election, then the delegates from snch countv to the State Conven tion shall be delegates to the District Congression al Convention to be held as aforesaid, for the dis trict in which such county may be. and that when such District Conventions meet at Sacramento as aforesaid they will each for tnemselves determine the time and place where they will make their nominations respectively.

State and Congressienal nominees of the Union party, shall be entitled to vote for such delegates. Vallandigham Visits Detroit.—The Detroit Advertiser and Tribune of April 30th contains the following : We are assured, upon trustworthy authority, that at the invitation of certain leading Democrats of Detroit, Vallandigham was in this city one night this week a secret meeting of Democrats—probably a club of Knights of the Golden Circle. Our information comes from a loy al Democrat, who was invited to be present, but who would scorn to be found in such company. We are notable at prssent to mention the names of those Democrats who were present at this meet ing, or what Vallandigham said, or by what clan destine means be was conveyed between Windsor and Detroit, but of the main fact, that under the cover of night. at the invitation of leading Demo crats of Detroit, he came here and made a speech, we have no doubt. It is not generally known what intimate relations exist between prominent Detroit Democratic politicians and the traitor exile. His mail comes to oor Post Office, directed to one of them, and there is scarcely a night in the week that more or less of them are not closeted with him. Death or Jeff. Davis' Son.—The President and bis family have just met with a great affliction in the sadden and violent death of Joseph £. Davis, second son of the President, about four years old. He fell from the east portico on Saturday after noon, between three and four o'clock, a distance folly fifteen feet, fracturing his hip and injuring bis tead Rir*mt*d Etcwiiner. Max 2. (From the American Flag.] A Copperhead Unearthed—Surgeon Ed ward* will probably obtain a Furlough. To th* Ajonuca* Flag:—The fcyal n?en of Butte county are no less surprised than mortified to to bear that Dr. T. J. Edwards, fmaulj a resident of this countv. has received the Appointment of Assistant Surgeon in the Army of the Republic, and now performing the duties of that responsible position at Fort Point, in the harbor of San Fran cisco. Dr. Edwards became a resident of this county in the year lS6l.and continued to reside among us until the Fall of It is well known by nearly every citizen of this county that while here the said Edwards was openly and avowedly opposed to the cause of the Union; that his bitter and uncom promising hostility to the National Administration was only equalled in the intensity by the earnest ness of bis support of Jeff. Davis and his anxiety for the triumph of the rebellion. He was an active laborer in the copperhead organization in this county, a member of the County and State Copper head Convention of lS62.and in fact up to the time of bis departure not a secessionists in our midst worked w:th more energy or anxiety for the defeat of the Union cause than did this same Dr. Edwards, Tetwith all this history, the work of his own acts and declarations, this embodiment of disloya.ty—this proud son of Treason’s land—this bold, open and determined copperhead, has receiv ed an appointment from the Government he has openly cursed, and now in his very heart hates. We write what we know, and accuse him only of that which we can prove. He dares not deny these charges. We are not advised of the manner of his procuring this appointment, hut we do know that it is undeserved and should not have been made, unless indeed the lime has come to reward the enemies of our Government, and to confer such places as would enable them, under certain circumstances, to render substantial aid to the Southern Confederacy. As we know this man. do you wonder that we are surprised and mortified at his appointment? We think not. We respectfully request that you give this a place in the columns of your paper, that those who have been instrumental in procur ing this man a position under the Government may read this political history, and then reflect upon the work of their hands.

Ex Governor Johnson, of Pennsyl vania. was chosen temporary chairman. Three and four hundred delegates were present. Some discussion occurred on the motion to appoint Committee on credentials, many of the delegates opposing it on the ground that many citizens were present, representing political organizations in several States, and vet were not furnished credentials. It was finally re solved to entitle the names of all present, the only credentials required being in declaration of the response of the calls for the Cleveland Convention. A committee on permanent or ganizalion, reported for President, John Coch rane, of New York; eighteen Vice Presidents: four Secretarys. Mr. Cochrane returned thanks for the honor conferred, and addressed the convention at some length. At the afternoon session, the committee on credentials reported, and found the following States represented: Ohio. Illinois, Mississippi, New York, New Jersey, lowa. Missouri, Michigan, Pennsylvania. Maryland. Wiscon sin, Tennessee, Maine, Indiana, New Llamp shire and the District of Columbia. The committee on resolutions reported sundry rules for the government of the convention, recom mending the rules of the House of llepresen tatives, and to take votes for candidates by States, according to representation in Con gress. This was opposed by several delegates who favored voting as a great National Mass Convention, each individual to have an equal voice with an association. After debate, the objectional clauses were stricken out and the following, in substance, resolutions were re ported from the committee. Ist. That the Federal Union shall be pre served. 2d. The Constitution and the laws of the United States shall be obeyed. 3d. The rebellion must be suppressed by force of arms, and without compromise. 4th. The rights of free speech, press, and habeas corpus must be held inviolate, save in districts where martial law has been pro claimed. nth. The rebellion has destroyed slavery,and the Federal constitution should be amended to prohibit its re-establishment, and secure to all men absolute equality before the law. 6th. That integrity and equality are deman ded at all times, in the administration of Gov ernment. That in time of war the want of them is criminal. 7th. Right and asylum except for crime, and subject to law, is a recognized principle of American Liberty; any violation of it cannot be over looked, and must not go uurebuked. Bth. The national policy known as the Mon roe doctrine, has become a recognized princi ple; and that the establishment of an anti-re publican government on this continent by any foreign power, cannot be tolerated. 9th. The gratitude and the support of the nation is due the brave soldiers and earnest leaders of the Union army and navy, for their heroic achievements in defence of our imperil led country. 10th. Favors the one term policy for Presi dent. 11th. That the constitution shall be so amended that the President and Vice Presi dent be so elected by a direct vote of the people. 12th. That the question of reconstruction of rebellious States belongs to the people through their representatives in Congiess and not the Executive. 13th. That the confiscation of the lands of rebels and their distribution among soldiers and actual settlers is a sound measure. John C. Freemont was declared the nomi nee of the convention for President of the U U. and John Cochrane of New York (or Vice President. Gilbert reported the name of the party as the ‘ Radical Democracy,” which was adopted by the convention. The convention adjourned sine die. Pcrr Preliminabt —Some of our rebel cotemporaries, who are evidently awake to the advantage of being on good terms with the Department Commander, are puffing General McDowell as "a sensible officer, who will not permit himself to be influenced by the Jacobin (loyal) press to interfere with freedom of speech and ot the press.” In other words, they count upon General McDowell's being a weak-minded officer of the Wright (not right) stamp, who will permit Copperhead papers and orators to talk treason and revile the Government as much as they please, if they will mention him once in a while as a “courteous gentleman.” We hope and believe that the California Cop perheads are greatly deceived in the character of the man who is to keep them in order hence forward, and that be will make them painfully sensible that bis little finger is thicker than bis predecessor's loirs.— Vr.vjdo Gnetlt. >’EW ADVERTISEMENTS., Attention Gaards! \ r OV ARE HEREBY ORDERED TT> ATTEND a Meeting of the Company at ther Armory, on Tuesday.

Mas-., au thor of ‘Clinical observations on the on the treat ment of abdominal diseases,” says, in a letter dated February 22nd, 1 "62, “I consider Bristol's Sugar coated Pills the best remedy for chronic Constipa tion at present known. With me they have never failed, and I have prescribed them in at least fifty instances.” He also states ; ■•That for all irregu larities of the digestive functions, the liver and the bowels, they are by far the most useful medicine be has ever presented—perfectly sale and eminently reliable.” Similar testimony is volunteered by Dr. Humphrey Lettson, of Chicago, 111., who enumer ates thirty cases, with names and dates, in which he has administered the Pills, with entire success, for nabitual costiveness and piles. Whenever they have been used as a remedy for liver and bowel complaints, the result has been equally satisfactory. They ars put np in glass vials, and will keep in any climate.
