McClellan's Lcttor Dissected by
Dr. Wood.
The Miserable InbigniCcance of the
General in the Eyes of the Feacc-at-any-Price
CJenernl Mei Irllnn'n Hi-mrsl.
from th .V. 1. Ilniltl .Vein,
It Is a well-known fact too easily proven to
be denied even by the Worlil that tbo coniidcn
tlnl friends of General MeClcllan wire desirous,
and made every cflort to procure his nomination
without any platform nt all. I.oidin;r Peace
Democrats wero approached with that view, but
steadfastly lcfuscd toueiiiiiiSLC in the proposition.
Thiydidnot desire General McClcllnn's nomi
nation under any circumstances, but would not
licnr of It or support It w ithout prescribing some
landmarks to guide his policy lu ease of hi
In oihi r words, they were not willing to accept
his "record" as the embodiment of their princl
plei or as the guarantee of his fidelity to tlie
party nnd Us purposes. The Chicago platform
wan accordingly adopted to furnish sumo better
lecurity, and without it no honest man, who w is
prcHeut, will pretend that General McC'Icllun
could have received the nomination.
That plaiform, it is notorious, was regarded
with great dissatisfaction by his especial hiend
of the War Democracy in this city and in Aloanv,
and we havo intoriiiiitioti whu u we think justi
tics us in asserting that the editor of the ll,
Mr. Marble, then nt Chicuiio, did himself des
patch a telegram to this city, in which he de
scribed the platform as "against ns."
No one laiiiiliar wild thu customs nnd morals
Of the World ollicowill be surprised, alter this
statement, at the enthusiasm and positiveuess
with which the same joui nal has since declared
the platform to bo in accordance Willi
McClcllnn's views ami its own, and Willi the
dechirCyins of his letter of acceptance, or at the
ficrctJtiss with which Mr. Marble, has denounced
the iutcgrity of all w ho deny that it is and w is
meant to be a dedication of ihc Democratic party
to the brutal poicv of continued coercion ami war.
Hut our hiisinc-s is with General McClcilun.
nnd not w th bis luingi rs-on. As he had failed
to procure the nomination on the faith ot Ins
"reord," it was but a r asoiiuhlc calculation
Upon his fair dealing and indeed upon his
modesty to suppose th it he would, without
doubt, decline the nomination, or accept it with
ordinary deference to ho dissent of the party
from tuo policy which he was pleased to con
sider as embodied in his "public til'o."
Much, therefore, us we were astonished at
his distinct repudiation of the platform, in his
letter of acceptance, wo confess that we were
even less picparcd lor his extraordinary declara
tion that he was "happy to know" th it "the re
cord of his public lile was kept in view" when
the nomination was made. lie knew, perfectly
well, when ho made that declaration, and his
friends and counselors, who ore now fooling and
destroying him, knew equally well, that upon
his past lil'o only, and without pledges for the
future, be would never havo received the indorse
ment of the Convention, as we have already said.
lie knew, and they knew, that if bis record
was "kept in view" at all, it was as a thing to be
regretted in the pu-t and as a warning in the
future. Despito all this, however, he has hail
the boldness to plant himself upon it, nnd the
vanity and folly to show himself proud of it.
We Lave therefore a right to judge hiui from it,
and to test by it the legitimacy of his pretensions
now to represent the principles and policy of tho
Democratic paity.
Yesterday it was our painful duty to show,
from General McClulluu's letter of acceptance,
that he is pledged as delinitely as Mr. Dm coin,
to the prosecution of the war, "at all ha.:irds"
and to tho bitter end, for tho coercion of the
Mouthcm .states, and that he does not even pro
pose to oiler an nrmistico or open negotiations
until it is "clear," or at all events"prob.ible,"th it
the Confederates are "ready for peace on tho
basis of the Union."
He will not treat with them even to persuade
them into tuch readiness and disposition, liny
must be "ready," of their own accord, to return
to the Union, or he will make war on them till
they become so. Now, let us look at his "record '
to ascertain what war means, in his hands, ami
according to his pnnelplos :
1st. It means a rigorous conscription, as at
tested by his lotter to President Lincoln.
2d. It means the annihilation of St-.uo inde
pendence and the suppression of State govern
minis by military power, as evidenced by his
dealings witu 11. e legislature ot Maryland.
3d. It menus tho military arrest and imprison
mcntof citizens, without oath or warrant, in
b lutes where Judicial process is uninterrupted,
ana meir removal oeyonu tno jurisdiction 01 the
competent trioiinaiH, to De coulined In remote
fortresses, without accusation and without limit
of time, at the caprice of the Federal Kxecu
tire or his subordinates. To this, the removal
and imprisonment of the members ot the
Maryland Legislature and other cill.eiu of that
State, by General MeClcllan la the Tall of 1801
bear unquestionable witness.
4th. It means military interference with elec
tions, as shown by his correspondence with
General Hunks in regard to the : Maryland elec
tions of lbtil, to be lotind on paces thirty-two
and tutrty-ttirec ot the pamphlet ol ".secret Uor
Atb. It means the suppression of newspapers
and the arrest ot their editors and printers, as
shown in the case of the liiltimoie journals,
which were broken up eontemporuncoiislv with
his mpprcsbion ol the Legislature ot Maryland
Ctb. It means the entire subordination of the
army to the will of the Executive, whether exer
cited constitutionullv or in llagrant violation of
the Constitution, and the denial ot their radii to
canvass, much less 10 disobey, the orders of their
superior-, even though oheileii"e may involve
tbe wholesale overthrow of the most s.icrcd
rights of person, property, and citizenship.
For this, our authoii'y is ti e addie.-s of Gem1
rul MeClcllan to the Army of the 1'otoiu ic, alter
lue piomulg ition of iho President s hniinoina
tion Proclamation, nud clissilied us "General Or
der No. IliX"
Heading in all these acts and declarations
which tho "public life" of General McOIoll.iu
discloses to us either an utter ignorance of tho
laws and constitution of his couu'ry, o.- a truly
military and sovereign contempt tor them and
the rights which they enshrine, how can we
Low is it possible for any man to look tho Ame
rican nt oplc in the face and profess to believe
that Gem ml McC'Icllan stands, upon bia
"record," aa ex onent of the principles and lccl
iugi ol the Democratic party i
He is not only the champion of coercion by
war, which is a cardinal heresy from the Demo
cratic faith, but he is for war with all tbe abuses,
and violence, and usurpation which have already
made the existing struggle more dangerous to
tho liberties ot the North than to the indepen
dence of the South, lie is the representative of
military necessity, military jurisdiction, and
military subserviency. Ho is the enemy of free
discussion and tree thought. Ho is tho advoca'e
of armed intervention in the halls of legislation
and at the ballot-box.
This is his own history, not only told by him
self but recalled by his own lips for the admira
tion of his countrymen. If this be Democracy,
we Lave studied iu valu the principles of tlia'
party, to which, till now, we bad fondly looked
tor the salvation of the country from despot
ism, anarchy, bankruptcy, and perdition, lie it
what it may, it is uut our taith uud we will not
bow dowu to it.
Enron rnueuteut of totlon (allure lu
ltcccnt accounts from Smyrna confirm the
news that since the Turkish Government las
adopted the plan of distributing cotton-seed gra
tuitously to the planters the produce has in
creased considerably. Iu the year lsui) the cot
ton txpGrted from Smyrna amounted to only
12,000 bules, and was c-tltuateJ at 1)30,00'). Ia
1W3 it increased to UO.OOO bales, and the value
rose in a greater proportion. This year it is ex
pected tbut tho province of Anatolia alono will
iroduce 180 UI0 bales. The Turkish Governm. nt
Las thus pained enormously by the encourage
ment it has given to improvement iu agricul

were fanned out Inst vuur for 71,000 Turki-h
pounds, pioilueo this "year 127,000; those of

1 n m n variety of muiecs we hear of priva
teers preparing to make a dash up ui our ship
pine;. Our Intel advices from Wilmington lead
ns to believe that it will not be runny days before
the m w privateers llmri, l.-Uil. and one or two
ther, including the T.dl-ilt ., will be out,
and at work on their mission of sinkintr, burning,
and destroying our unarmed merchantmen.
Already ono is reported to be on our northeast
ern coast. Wlu.t ves-cl .-he is, and where she
came from, has not yet been as. ertaimi'l.
A correspondent i f the Dos;,, n ,,, ,i, who
was on board tbo steamer Vim -.ut'j on h-r hist
ti lp from lloston to Halifax, gives tho following
particulars of her adventure with a vessel sup.
posed to be a new Rebel privateer :
1 have to communicate the important news of
a new Rebel privateer otr this co.i-t. She Is un
doubtedly one ot the newonc,not yet known bv
any nets, just rait from Wilmington. The ti le of
tbe ltav i t l'undy bad set in so strong as to cause
us to make Sea Island nearer th in usnal, and t
lb is fact we probably owe our es. ape. Fro n Se.i
Islam! we lava near cour-e to t ipo Slide,
mutin g inside l.iud rock. hen oil the hitler
place we uiscovcicd bat we supposed to be a
bamtie down for us, but it s-ion proved a
steamer, thom h not under steam, trying to hea l
us i ll; but from the fact before named. as we ha 1
tbe ii side track, we were not long iu getting in
side of the three leagues necessary for protection.
During tho elioi e she showed first tho English
ensign, next two others in ipiiek sueces-ion, which
we could not make out. She rhnsed us well into
land, and when it was obvious she had missed
In r prey she wheeled about dire tly in tho ruth
lie came. Mic was t irone-i igLfei, painieo loan
color, one smoke-stack, and a in. ilium size vessel.
Muco arriving here I havo further proof or
her being a privuti cr, as tho ll-'iiiudu ateaniet
arrived vesterday beforo us, and it was no
her, and thero is no English at
pnsent known to be ill that vicinity, to ithern
sympathizers: here claim that lour "I them
will soon tic nuoat upon tneir wora ot iiestnic-
tion. She bad evidently counted on getting
between us and tho shore, and thus hav
ing an oil shore chnso to her advantage, but
tbo positions were fortunately reversed, and wo
enpea. i tiiniK, in common w itn otners, mat
she will coal from somo American vessel coal
laden, hound Irom Cape llreton to lioston or
New York, which sho may capture, and then be
ready for extensive mischief. This is evidetitlv
lier lu st appearance, though she may have m ide
captures, the knowledge of which you may have
received ere this, l ne winn was mowing north
east at the time, and her iiumo uvres were sii -h
as no merchant vessel upon regular course would
have pursued."
1 ho Southern pnpers Intimate in a conn. tent
manner that the day is not f ir distant when our
merchants will meet with annoyance and loss at
tbo hands of these bold adventurers, wfm h they
claim can run out und into Wilmington at
uur niocKauing ves ou iirnini. m musi
bestir themselves ansmcep a bright look-out for
these craft, nnd in cuso Admiral le o should lot
them sbpont by him, tho Navy Depirtment has
proposed u special llyiui,' s piadron to pick
them up.
e lire unable at present to st ito wuai prepa
rations linve been made, but snilice it to say that
ncvor since tho war began ha- the depirtuient
shown so much foresight as it has in stationing a
number of vessels nt certain points lor
service. Tbe next time tbe Kc'iel ensign is found
at sea oil our coast, it will not have tho chance
to llv as impudently us on former occasions.

The MiiiDi-H of Captain Kt.i.ioir Trw
WocNus Inflicti ij os ins Pi-.usox. A des
patch from II. II. K. Klliott, dated this day at
Indianapolis, states that he is on his way home
with the body of his son, Captain IUrvcy Klliott,
who, it will bo remembered, was murdered
several weeks kincc on tho line of the Chicago,
Indianapolis, und l'eru ruilroad, not far fioin the
city oi ltidiunapolis.
His body was thrown out upon the track with
the evident purpose ot giv ing the impression that
It lisd Ijccn lun over. I'pon the body of Captain
r.lliottno less than ten stubs were discovered,
any one of which was sullieieut to cause death.
Resides rilling the pockets of ihc deceased, his
murderer or murderers left him almost without a
vestige of clothing.
('upturn Elliott was a brother of Captain Thos.
II. Klliott, an aid on (lencral Ueary's stall, whoso
wounding aud death before Atlanta, we recorded
sometime since. The body of Captain Klliott
will arrive in this city to morrow. Several United
Stutes Detectives are on tho track of the person
or perfous who committed this brutal murder,
and the arrest of a muu ou suspiclou has already
taken place.
Look Oct ron Him. A young man, about 2 j
years of age, bushy whiskers and moustache, is
on a "collecting tour" among our citizens, which
collections, it may be as well to state, arc applied
exclusively to bis own individual benefit. He
has been considerate enough to drop lu upon the
clergy during the course of his perambulations,
and with the unctuous tongue which he is repre
sented to possess, be has succeeded iu doing two
or three of the brethren lo the extent of a few
dollars or so. On Saturday morning last our
collector presented himself at the residence of a
miuister of the gospel, rosiding in the vicinity of
Broad and South streets, ite reprcsenteu luiu
...ii' an Ur. l.eis. a member of Dr. Wvlie's
church, and that he resided in the vicinity of
Ninth and Green streets. Ho was on a collecting
tour, aud desired some change for the person who
was about to par him a bill. At lirst tho Strang r
was regarded with some suspicion, but be seemed
to be perfectly familiar with a number of pastors,
and the most prominent members of Dr. Wylie's
congrcgution. The change was bauded him,
loch h i.roiuised to return iu half an hour. As
may be surmised, the rascal has not since mado
, his appcuranee.

Eilatory Districts to bo Drawn
Ry telegram from llarrisbuig, we are informed
that the draft in this city nnd Suite is tixed fjr
Monday next, the lih inst.
Although the quota of this ci'y has been re
duced some thousands by means of the cnlist
mei ts and credits for the men who have entered
the navy, still I'uInd, -ldiia is not yrt rxempt from
the dm ft. In a number of the wards of this city,
print exertion" luivo been mado from the tim
li e tact ol tho draft was lirst announced, to till
their ipiota, and ill Ibis laudable desiio some have
suc eeoed.
Others ure yet deficient, some fifty or one hun
dred nun, while a third class have ncglecte I to
institute evi u tbo initiatory moveiii'iit I'l the
nin'Ur the calling of award meeting. T.J all
such, who come under tbe latter head, we can
only call their attention to the gratifying fact th it
in accordance with recent orders received from
ashingb n, the dralt will flr-t bo commenced in
those districts whero the residents have been
least energetic iu cude.noring to raise recruits to
fill their quota.
I 1 liu object of this charitable provision is to
allow ii 1 1 poM-ililc time to other wards where
i Hurls Line In en ma. lo to olivi ne tho nece-sity

ol ri emits not a single ward iu this city should

ol the mosi pppnlnu of our wards havo suc
ceeded in reducing their quota to a few se re of
no n. and we can perceive no reason why I'lnlt
deiphui should not be entirely exempt. I here is
ir.ot ry crouch iu the h inds o' our citizens to

The New York Herald tills morning says :
"There will be a light commercial demand for
gold for some months to come; for our imports,
are diminishing, and are likely to remain at a low
ebb, compared with the returns of the past yer.
for no short period to come, while the expjrts of
I nited fjtates bonds to Europe will no dou'jt
Increase, and dispense with an equivalent amount
of exchange. The tendency of gold will, there
fore, bo downwnrd, but not, perhaps, till after this
week In any considerable degree; for the gold msjs.
ket bus been a little oversold, and the purchases 04
account of the short sales may be sorUcient 10
maintain it for a few diys at nearly the present
quotations. Tbe decline of the last few d its,
follow ing upon that of the previous fortnight, Q it
luid a tendency to make hoarders of coinUisgoigqi
It ; and ihe more instances of this kind that ue.-ue
the more quickly is gold in its relation to tlij
currency likely to assume a healthy tone."
