it could not result otherwise. Some

treats in a late issue upon the two can

Union National Convention for the
next Presidency
"In a crisis of the most appalling
magnitude, requiring statesmanship
of tho highest order, the country is
asked to consider the claims of two ig
norant, boorish, third-rate, bgekwoods
lawyers, for the highest stations in the
Government. Such nominations, in
such ,a conjuncture, are an insult to
the common sense of the people. God
save the Republic!"
This kind of talk is a sure (7) way
of displacing confidence in the nation's
most prominent and tried Union men.
Y' Several of the traitor shoots
openly advocate the nomination of
.Fremont by the Chicago Convention.
If they could defeat Lincoln & John
son by ruining Fred Douglas, we can
didly believe they, would accept of
him as their candidate. With them it
is office and spoils,—any thing to "get
in," that they may be able to help
their "Southern brethren."
The Pennsylvania Reserves.
- -The shattered-columns-of' the Penn
sylvania Reserves returned to the
State last week, after three - years of
most heroic service in the cause of
the country, and they were formally
welcomed at the capitol by Governor
Curtin and Mayor Roumfort, and by
the grateful hearts of a loyal people.
Tho Reserve Corps was originated
and - organized by Governor Curtin.—
kwas in obedience to his earnest ap
peal to a committee of the legislature
that the measure was adopted; and
the bill was =dully drawn under his
immediate direction. This was in
May 1861. Few men in the North
then apprehended a protracted and
bloody war; but Governor Curtin, ever
alive to the interests of his great State
and faithful to the cause of an imper:
filled Nationality, was ceaseless in his
efforts to effect the organization of a
Reserve, to secure the protection of
our borders, and to aid the National
arms in case of disaster. Many reluc
tant votes were cast for the bill. in the
legislature, as the conviction was gen
eral that the movement. upon Bull
Run would practically end the rebel
lion, and the large expenditure neces
sary to recruit, organize, arm and
equip such a corps, made even some
faithful men slow to assent to the mea
sure. The result, however, more than
vindicated the foresight of Gov Curtin.
Before the organization was comple-•
ted, a call was made upon him for aid
in Western Virginia,and the regiments
of Colonel Simmons (killed on the Pe
ninsula) and Colonel Biddle (since
turned malignant copperhead) with .2
companies of artillery under Captain
(now General) Campbell, were march
ed to Cumberland and did good serv
ice on the line of - the Baltimore & Ohio
Soon after the -disaster at Bull Run
dashed the high hopes of the nation to
the earth, and the stoutest hearts did
tremble lot' the safety of the national
Capital. - McDowell's army was utter
ly routed, and retreated panic-stricken
upon Washington—thousands pressing
into the eity, while the rude fortifca
tions on the Virginia side.were but im
perfectly manned. So grave were the
fears for the safety of Washington for
several days, that Commodore Dupont
and other eminent naval and military
men went into the fortifications to
bring order out of chaos and aid in
serVing the guns in case of an attack.
In this fearful extremity, there Was no
State but Pennsylvania that could af
ford succor; and to its faithful Execu
tive and legislature, and the brave men
who responded to their call, was the
nation indebted for the safety of the
Capital, and also for the nucleus of the
Army of the Potomac, which has won
a fame as wide as the World and en
during as Time itself. The Pennsyl
vania Reserves commenced their
march to Washington on the 22d day
of July 1861—the very day after the
defeat of MeDowell, and in a few days
they were all in the field, 15,856 men
strong. Last week the survivors re
turned, and scarcely 3,000 of the orig
inal number bore arms the day they.
were discharged. Such is their record
of heroism.
Of the original fifteen Colonels, but
one returns with his command—Col
II G Sickles, of York. Col Simmons,
of the sth, was killed at Charles City
Cross Roads; Col Jackson, of the 9th,
-- 7 -
vas promoted to be a Wigadier, and
was killed at Fredericksburg, and Col
Bayard, of the 15th, was killed at the
same place. Col Campbell was trans
ferred and promoted, and was severely
wounded in several battles. He is
now a Brigadier in the West. Colonel
Woolworth, who succeeded to the
command of the 4th was killed recent
ly in West Virginia; Col McNeil who
succeeded to the command of the 13th,"
vas killed at Antietam; and Col Tay
lor, his successor, was killed at Gettys
burg. Of the Colonels in service when
the corps was discharged, Fisher and
McCandless commanded brigades at
Gettysburg, and in the recent battles
under Gen .Grant, and Col Sickles was
at one time left as commander of the
whole division.
The Reserve Corps Was organized
under Gon McCall, who was a fine dis
ciplinarian; but ho failed as a com
mander in the field, and was mustered
out of service. He had under him
Gens. Reynolds, Meade and Ord. God
McCall commanded in the Peninsula
campaign, Reynolds in the Popo cam
.Meade in the Antietam and
Fredericksburg campaigns, and Craw
ford in the Gettysburg and Grant,eani
paigns. Of its three original brigade
commanders, Reynolds became com
mander of the First Army Corps, and
fell gallantly at Gettysburg; Meade is
now in command of the frdiy of the
Potomac; and Gen Ord was promoted
.to the command of the 13th Army
Corps, and served with distinction in
several campaigns about Vicks
burg. Of the other brigade comman
ders!Gen Jackson was killed, and Gen
Seymour is a prisoner. Col. McCand
less is at home in Philadelphia, woun
ded, Col Fisher returns with his men,
and Gen Crawford is still in the field,
after having led them with great skill
and gallantry in seine of the most san
guinary battles of the war.
The first triumph gained by the U
nion arips in Eastern Virginia was won
by the Reserves at Drainesville under
; Ord; and every battle since fought by
the . Army of the Potomac was partici
. paled in by this brave corps. In no
instance was its fame blotted in battle
—its record is one of perpetual heroism,
and bloody sacrifice to maintain the
life of the Republic. As instances of
its gallantry, its losses in the "Seven
' days' Battles" were 3,074; Freder
icksburg 1,760 out of 4500 taken into
! action; at Antietam 1,118, and in the
! battles of the Wilderness and the Po
over 2,200, including however some
800 captured. Such is the history in
brief of the battle scarred Pennsylva
nia Reserves. After three years of
service in which they have enriched
the groymd of every eastern battle
field With their blood, they return with
scarcely Ondfifth their original number
The living come to meet the grateful
plaudits of a loyal people; the dead
sleep in their nameless tombs, but their
memory is enshrined in the heart of
every patriot.— Chang. Repos. of 15th.

The Late Defeat of General Sturgis.
Mr.mrms, Juno 14, via. Cincinnati,
Junel6.—The following detailed infor
mation in regard to the late . defeat of
Gen. Sturgis is gathered mostly from
officers accompanying the expedition,
and is mainly correct :
Nothing of intereA occured until
the expedition passed Salem, Mississ
ippi, on the sth, when three hundred
men were sent in advance, paSsing
through Ripley,, capturing small par
ties of the enemy, and moving upon
Rienzi and Danville, destroying the
railroad, burning the depot at the for
mer place,"and'constantly skirmishing
with a considerable body of the enemy.
They, rejoined the main column on the
Bth inst. with 25 prisoners.
On the 9th the main column passed
through Ripley, moving southwest.
On the morning of the 10th the caval
ry moved in the direction of Guntown,
leaving the infantry in camp. After
proceeding a few miles they eneeun•
toyed the enemy's pickets, and soon
came upon a large body of the enemy
in position, and the battle became gen
eral. The cavalry dismounted and
drove the enemy some distance. when
the latter were reinforced, and our
men fought four hours against groat
odds, when the infantry came up and
the cavalry returned.
At 3 P. M. another large body of
the enemy arrived on the railroad in
sight of the battle, which'was raging
furiously. All our force being engag
ed, it was soon evident wo could not
withstand such attacks as worn being
made by such superior numbers. and
our men began to fall back, contest
ing every inch of ground. Tho color
ed troops fought with desperation, and
were the last to give way. The col
retreated to Ripley, a distance of
25 miles, that night,, after burning, a
large portion of their supply train and
destroying ten pieces of artillery,
which they were unable to move
through the swamps,
On the 11th the enemy made a des
perate attack on the infantry, which
was repulsed; but the attack was re
newed, and considerable portions of
the infantry were cut ofr and captur
ed. kfter the ammunition bad be
come exhaused, it is stated that many
of the negro troops boarded the am
munition train as it was being destroy
ed, filling their pockets and bosoms
with cartridges. Others gathered the
ammunition from the cast-of accou
trements of the, white troops, and thus
were enabled to keep upthe fight until
they reached Memphis.
It is stated that, one body of 1,300
infantry, which was cut off and sup
posed to have been captured, was de
fended by 200 negroes from repeated
assaults of tho rebel cavalry, and ar
rived at Collierville soon after the
main coluinn. Another body of 300
nogroes arrived this morning, having
escaped by by-roads, all inging in
their arms.
The loss is now estimated at 125 ne
groes, 14 pieces of artillery, and about
1,500 men. All of the 57th United
States Colored have come in except
200 mon and six officers; 300 of the

WASIIINGTON, June 15, 7 A. M.—To
Major Gen. Dix, New York : The
movement of the Army of the Poto
mac to the south side of - Richmond,-
across the ehickahominy and James
rivers, has progressed far enough to
admit of the publication of some gen
eral facts without danger of a prema
ture disclosure.
After several days' preliminary pre
parationS, the movement commenced
on Sunday night. The 18th Army
Corps, under command of General
Smith, marched to , the White House,
and then embarked on transporth for
Bermuda Landing,
Gen. Wright's corps and Burnside's
moved to Jones's Bridge, where they
crossed the Chickahommy and mar
ched thence to Charles city, on the
James river. Hancock's and War

at Long Bridge, and marched thence
to Wilcox's, on the James river. The
James river was crossed by the army
at Powhattan Point.
A despatch from Gen. Grant, dated
Monday evening, 51 o'clock, Head
quarters, Wilcox's Landing, states
that the advance of our troops had
reached that place, and would com
mence crossing the James river to
morrow, Tuesday, and that Smith's
corps would commence crossinn• at
City Point that night; that no fight
ing was reported damn , * the move
ment, except a little cavalry skirmish
ing. Yesterday (Tuesday) afternoon
at 1 o'clock, Gen. Grant was at Ber
muda Landing.
In a dispatch from him dated there,
of that date he says, "our forces will
commence crossing the James river to
day. The enemy show no • signs of
yet having brought troops . to the
south side of Richmond. Our move
ment from Cold Harhoi to the James
river has been made with great celer
ity, and so far without loss Or acci
A despatch from General Shermah's

ports that the expedition, consisting
of 3,000 cavalry and 5,000 infantry,
and 16 pieces of artillery, sent out from
there a few days ago, under command
of Gon. Sturgis, encountered a large
rebel force on the 10th. inst., under
command of Forrest, at Guntown, on
the railroad running south from Cor
inth, and after a severe, fight, in which
our loss in killed and wounded was
heavy, our forces were worsted; that
at the last accounts Sturgis was at
Colliersville, retreating towards Mem

Memphis is safe.
General Sherman, having received
the news of Sturgis's defeat, reports
that ho has already made arrange
ments to repair the disaster, and has

WAsuncornN, Jan 3 18, 10 r.
To .211 of. Gen. Dix, Area; York :
The following dispatch from Gen.
Grant, dated yesterday at o'clock
a. m., at City Point has been received
by this department.
The Ninth corps this morning car
ried two redoubts forming a part of
the defences of Petersburg, capturing
40 prisoners and four guns.
Our successes are being followed up
—our forces drew out from within 50
yards of the entrenchmenfs . at Cold
Harbor. made a flank movement, av
erage of about fifty miles march, cros
sing tho Chickahominy and James
river, the latter being 2,000 feet wide
and 84 feet deep at the'point of cros
sing and surprised the enemy's rear
at Petersburg.
, This liras done without the loss of a
wagon or piece of artillery, .and only
about one hundred and fifty stragglers
were picked up by the enemy. •
In covering this move, Warren's
Corps and Wilson's cavalry had fre
quent skirmishinr , b with the enemy
each having from fifty to sixty - killed
and wounded, but inflicting an equal
if not greater loss on the enemy.
The - Eighteenth .corps, Smith's, wore
transferred from White House to Ber
muda Hundred by water. It moved
out near to Petersburg in the night,
and captured the very strong works
northeast of Petersburg before suffi
cient force could be got in them by
the enemy to hold them.
- He was joined the night following
this capture by the second corps,
which in turn captured more of the
enemy's redoubts further south, and
this corps was followed by the Ninth
with the result above stated.
All the troops are now up except
two divisions covering the wagon
trains, and they will be up to night.
The enemy in their endeavors to re
inforce Petersburg, abandoned their
intrenehments in front of 'Bermuda
Hundred. They no doubt expected
troops from the north .side of James
river to take their places before they
were discovered.
Butler took advantage of this and
Moved a fore at once upon the rail
road and plank road between Rich

to retain possession of:
Too much credit cannot be ,g ‘ iven
the troops and their commander for
the energy and fortitude displayed du
ring the last five days. Day and
night has been all the same, no delays
being allowed on any account. Later
unofficial dispatches show that at 8 o'-
clock this morning the enemy still oc
cupied Petersburg. Major Morton
was killed in an assault yesterday.
Nothing has been received to day
from Sherman or Hunter.

Washington, June 18-11 p. In.
Dispatches from Gen. Sheridan have
just been received. He reports a vic
tory over the enemy at Trevillian sta
tion on the Virginia Central Railroad
a -few- miles- south of Gordonsville,
where Gen. Leo a few days ago repor
ted a rebel victory. The official report
is as follows
"I have the honor to report to you
the arrival of my command at this
point, and also to report its operations
since leaving New Castle Ferry. I
crossed the Pamunkey river on the
7th inst., marching via •Aylett's and
encamping on Ironing Creek.
On the morning of the Bth I rcsu
mod the march via Polecat Station,
and encamped three miles west of the
On the 9th I marched through Chi
lesburg and near Matchett, encamping
on E. N. E. Creek, • near Young's
On the 10th 1 marched via Andrews
Tavern and Teviman's Store, crossing
both branches of the North Anna and
encamped at Burehchilds, about three
miles north of Trevilian Station. My
intention was to break the railroad at
this station, march through Mechan
icsville, cut the Gordonsville and Char
lottsville road near Lindsay's House
and then to march on Charlottsville.
But on our arrival at Burchehild's
House I found the enemy's cavalry in •
my immediate front.
On the morning-of the 11th, Gener
al Torbet with his division and Colo
nel Gregg's Brigade of General Gea
ry's division attacked the. enemy and
after an obstinate contest drove him
from the successive lines of breast
works through an almost impassable
forest back on Trevilian Station.
In the mean time General Custer
was ordered with his brigade to pre
coed by a country road so as to reach
the station in the rear of the enemy's
cavalry. On their arrival at this point
the enemy brokeinto a complete rout;
leaving twenty officers, five hundred
men and three hundred horses.
These operations occupied the whole
of the day—at night 'I 'etwarhped at
Trovillian Station and on the morning
of the 12th commenced destroying the
railroad from this point to Lobisa
court house. This has thoroughly
been executed, the ties burned and the
rails rendered unservicable. The des
truction of the railroad occupied until
3 o'clock of this day.
I directed. General Torbert to ad
vance with 'his division and General
Davis' brigade to Gordonsville, and at
tack the enemy, who bad concentra
ted and been reinforced by infantry
during the. niglit, and had also con
structed rifle-pits at a point five miles
from Gordonsville. Tho advance was
made, but as the enemy's position was
too strong to assault no general attack
was made.
On the extreme right of our lines
portion of trio Reserve brigade carried
the enemy's forts twice, and was twice
driven therefrom by infantry. Night
closed the contest.
I found on the examination of the
command that there was not a suffi
ciency of ammunition left to continuo
the engagement, next day. Trains of
cars also carne down to where we
were engaged with the enemy.
The reports of prisoners and citi
zens wore that Pickotts' old division,
or a portion of it, were coming to pre
vent the taking of Gordonsville.
I therefore, during the night and
next morning withdrew my command
over die North Anna, via Carpenters
Ford ; near Miners Bridge. In midi
thin, the animals Were for the entire
days in which we wero engaged with
out forage. The surrounding country
afforded nothing but grazing of a very
inferior quality, and generally at such
points as were inaccessible to usr.
The cavalry engagement of the 12th
was by far the most brilliant ono of
the present campaign
The enemy's loss is very heavy.
My loss in killed and wounded will
be about five hundred and seventy
five; of this number four hundred and
ninety were wounded.
I captured, and have now with me
three hundred and seventy prisoners
of war, including twenty commission
ed OfficerS.
My loss in captured will not exceed
ono hundred and sixty; they were
principly from the fifth Michigan cav
alry. •
