No Political Parties in this time of
National Perils
Both political parties have met and
made their party nominations. What
ever may be said either by the resolu
tions of the Conventions or by the ad
vocates of the tickets nominated by
them, the fact is too palpable that they
are both strictly PARTY tickets. The
wishes and the hopes of the people
were disregarded and disappointed by
this action. They want no party tick
ets, and no political strife a; this time.
They feel that whatever they may
have called each other in the past, they
can recognize all loyal men as patriots
and brethren now, and feeling thus
they do not wish t.) be arrayed in ap
parent hostility. The Country needs
the united strength of its people both
in council and in the field, to put down
Treason. Every man who now as
sumes the duties of office, should do so
untrammelled by obligations arising
from party nomination and election.—
He should feel that ho has been called
by the whole people to act for them,
and against their enemies; and not for
a part of them, against the other part.
To accomplish this, the people must
act for themselves, and disregard the
bidding of party leaders and partisans
of every name.
We think this is the desire of the
people of this county. Every man who
has a son or brother in the army thinks
more of standing by him, strengthen
ing his hands, than of the success of
We, therefOre, citizens .of the coun
ty, (not because we are dissatisfied
with the men. nominated by parties, but
because we are against party strife at
all,) in the exercise of our rights as
citizens, and discarding all party dis
tinctions, unite in a call for a CON
VENTION to be held in Huntingdon,
Tuesday, the 9th of September, 1862,
at 2 o'clock, P. M., to nominate candi
dates to be supported by all loyal citi
zens, who wish to ignore party, and to
unite in cordial earnest support of the
Government and the War. We sug
gest that the citizens in the various
boroughs and townships select, from
each, FOUR DELEGATES on the
fixed for meeting of the Convention.—
The election for delegates to be held at
the usual places of holding township
and general elections.
The Union Convention.
The call has been approved by voters
of all parties in every district in the
county, and ,as each district has au
thorized the election of delegates by
signing the call, we do not see that any
strength wOuld be given the cause by
publishing names in this paper. We
have heard from most of the townships,
and we are gratified to know that the
voters of both - the old parties 'are
strongly in
of a Union War
Ticket. All that is necessary to unite
the Union vote of the county upon one
ticket, is the election of good men as
delegates to the Union Convention on
the 9th. Let every township and bo
rough be represented in the Conven
tion. l'he good men should come and
consult together, and determine what
shall be done to defeat the partisan
spirit that is not popular with the peo
ple. We want the people to speak—to
lead—and we will follow. Come then,
Democrats, and Republican, and Peo
ple's Party—all who aro opposed to
partisan tickets—come, consult as a
loyal people should consult, and you
will have the proud satisfaction of
knowing that you have made an effort
to satisfy the demands of a large ma
jority of the loyal voters of the county.

The War Near Waßhington.
Once more the seat of the struggle
against the rebellion is in front of
Washington. The cannonading of the
past few days is said, indeed, to have
been heard in the streets of the city.
The rebels have gathered all their
strength, and are making a last and
desperate' effort to take the Capital.—
Taking advantage of the neglect or
oversight of our Generals, their active
and skillful leaders have turned our
army and actually thrown a large
force between its main body and its
base at Alexandria and Washington.
As a consequence of this, our troops
have had to fight at a disadvantage,
and the battles of last Friday and
Saturday, fiercely contested on both
sides, have caused us heavy losses.—
The battle of Friday appears to have
resulted iu our favor ; that of Satur
day, owing to the arrival of rebel re
inforcements, was in their favor. On
Sunday, if the reports are to be credi
ted, there was but little fighting, pro
bably because neither army was in a
condition to make an attack, after
such terrible work as they bad gone
While battles are raging and' their
results aro still unascertained, it is not
becoming to criticise Generals and
and their plans. Indeed it is not pos
sible to criticise them intelligently till
they are over. Then it may be ascer
tained whether proper precautions
were observed, whether • all weak
points on our front were carefully
watched, whether our forces were pro
perly posted, whether their move
ments, when danger was upon them,
were wisely ordered and skillfully ex
ecuted. The credit for failure or suc
cess may then be given properly.—
But now all is confusion in regard to
the battles near Bull Run. We only
know that the armies that were to
take Richmond. are now doing their
best to defend Washington. That they
will be able to make a successful de
fence, and soon resume the aggressive,
wo firmly believe. Although proba
bly still outnumbered by the enemy,
our reinforcements are going forward
rapidly, and the fortifications about
the city are very strong. Still, it is a
mortifying and discouraging thing to
find our army no nearer to Richmond
than it was thirteen months ago, after
the first repulse from Bull Run.
Perhaps the fault finders, who have
declared that the rebel army in Vir
ginia was not so large as ours, will be
gin to confess they were wrong, since
they have been able to press Pope
w!th an overpowering force in front,
and at the same time throw another
force in his rear. They will see why
General McClellan, with an army of
80,000 or 90,000 men, asked for rein
forcements and co-operation to enable
him to take Richmond. This under
rating the -force of the enemy has
been the great mistake in the conduct
of the war. Some of those who now
estimate the rebel army in Virginia at
250,000 men, were among the critics
who endeavored to demonstrate that
it never exceeded 80,000 or 100,000.
To convince us of the mistake, wo
have bad to fight numerous battles
and to make various retreats. Here
after there will be no withholding of
reinforcements from our generals.—
The President's call for 300,000 new
volunteers has enabled him to strength
en our armies both in the East and
the West. Then will come the draft,
which will bring a fresh supply into
the field. Believing that the rebel
army can be but little increased, we
are not likely to be outnumbered by
them in future battles, as we have
been on almost every occasion hereto
fore.—Evening Bulletin, Sept. Ist.
If the Government has not been as
successful in the suppression of the re
bellion as was expected, who is to
blame ? Will any person pretend to
say that the continued denunciation
of the war as an " Abolition war "—a
war to free the "niggers "—a war to
put the "nigger" upon an equality
with tho white man.of the North,—
has been helping the Government to
accomplish good results ? Every can
did man must admit that the opposi
tion this war and the Administration
has met with from an organized oppo
sition political party in the . North, has
had much to do in keeping alive the
struggle between the North and South.
President Lincoln's party is the only
thoroughly loyal party in the country.
He is no political partisan now, and op
posed to him, wo find all extremes—
the Abolitionists and Vallandigham
Democrats of the North, and the Se
cessionists of the South. Until a more
loyal party shall rise up, we shall sup
port the loyal party that stands by
the President, believing it the only
proper course for all loyal men to pur

W. A. WALLACE, Esq., of Clearfield,

and Blair.
The Position of a True Democrat.
The following are the remarks of
Brigadier General Richard BUSTEED,
at the great war meeting in New York,
on Wednesday last :
" I have the utmost contempt for
him who by speechor act attempts to
draw party lines now. This is the ap
propriati3 office of home traitors; let
them have a monopoly of the work.—
lam certain no true Democrat will
engage in it, at least no intelligent or
reputable person who will do so.—
There is a great fight on hand between
democracy and aristocracy; between
the privileges of the few and the
rights of the multitude—between caste
and republican equality—and be is the
genuine democrat who loves Liberty
more than Slavery.
"The democracy that will not en
dure this test is spurious. The man
who delays or hazards victory to our
arms, by talking kindly of rebels, or
unkindly of lawful authority or neces
sary instrumentalities, or by preven
ting enlistments, or in any other way,
is not only not a Democrat but he is a
traitor; meaner than all his Southern
compatriots ; a sneaking,sniveling, cow
ardly traitor, scarcely worth the rope
or time it would take to hang him.
"My own position is easily declared.
I was a Democrat. lam a loyal lover
of my country, whose free institutions
Ido not care to outlive. [Cheers.] I
trill be what her necessities, the convic
tions of my intelligence and the dictates
of my conscience makes me. if this
be treason to party, party can make
the most of it." [Great applause.]
Them is a class of home " h umbu gs,"
or traitors, or something else, who can
seldom see the good qualities in the
brave soldier. We do not think it
will be very difficult for all loyal men
to make a few proper comments after
reading the folldwing wholesale denun
ciation of brave officers, by that pure
Democratic sheet, the Harrisburg Pa
triot (CI Union, of Saturday last.
The Patriot tf; Union says:
" We are afraid we are very near to
the truth when we pronounce General
Pope to be, in our opinion, a humbug—
almost as extensive an insect as Fre
mont. Buell, we fancy, is asleep, try
ing to dream out what the war's
about, the problem that troubled him
so at first. Ulysses has fallen into
the power of the Cyclops, and instead
of poking out his eye, as his great
namesake did, has had both his own
done for. We fervently pray that the
next shower may bring us down a
few live Generals instead of myriads of
toads. We can dispense with the rep
tiles, but the Generals we want,"
"If we were in favor of the war,
we would not hesitate a moment to
go."—Selinsgroce, Times.
This Selinsgrove Times is the organ
of the ITallandigham Democracy of
Snyder county. It is opposed to the
war because its sympathies aro with
the rebels—and yet it claims to be a
loyal Union paper. It is about as
loyal to the Government as many oth
er Vallandigham Democratic presses
we could name. Will Bro. Owen con
descend to give us his opinion of the
Democracy and loyalty of the Selins
grove Times?

As soon as I discovered that a large
force of the enemy was turning our
right toward Manassas, and that the
division I had ordered to take post
there, two days before, had not yet
arrived there from Alexandria, I im
mediately broke up my camps at War
renton Junction and Warrenton, and
marched rapidly back in three columns.
I directed McDowell, With his own
and Sigel's corps, and Reno's division,
to march upon Gainesville by the War
renton and Alexandria pike ; Reno and
one division of Heintzleman to march
on Greenwich; and, with Porter's corps
and Hooker's division, I marched back
to Manassas Junction. Dowell was
ordered to interpose between the for
ces of the enemy, which had passed
down to Mantissas through Gaines
ville, and his main body, which was
moving down from White Plains thro'
Thoroughfare Gap. This was com
pletely accomplished. Longstreet,
who had passed through the gap, be
ing driven back to the west side. The
forces sent to Greenwich were design
ed to support McDowell in case ho
met too large a force of the enemy.
The division of Hooker, marching
towards Manassas, came upon the en
emy near Kettle Run, on the afternoon
of the 27th, and after a sharp action
routed them completely, killing and
wounding 300, and capturing their
camps and baggage and many stands
of arms.
This morning the command pushed
rapidly to Manassas Junction, which
Jackson bad evacuated three hours in
advance. Ire retreated by way of
Centreville, and took the turnpike to
wards Warrenton.
He was net when six miles west of
Centreville by McDowell and Sigel.
Late this afternoon a severe fight
took place, which has been terminated
by the darkness.
The enemy was driven back at all
points; and thus the affair rests.
Heintzleman's corps will move on
him at daylight, from Centreville, and
I do not see how he is to esonpe with
out heavy loss.
We'have captured a thousand priso
ners, many arms, and one piece of ar
tillery. JOHN - POPE,

The Enemy's Strength
The enemy, according to the reports
of prisoners who have been taken, and
who seem to be in telligen t, has recently
been reinfbrced enormously, and now
includes the entire rebel army in the

go so fhr as to say that, according to
