The Union State Convention.
We had the pleasure of being a look
er on at the Union State Convention
which assembled at Harrisburg 'on
Thursday last. The Convention was
harmonious and carried out the will of
the loyal people of the State by putting
in nomination two, gentlemen Ivho had
faced the eneinyin the field, Gen. JNO.
F. HARTRANFT 3 of MOntgoniery county,
and COI. -JACOB M., CAMNIELL, of Cam
bria county. Our choice for Surveyor
General, Capt. Brice X. Blair, 'was un
successful, not because he was not con
sidered as worthy as Col. Campbell,
but because the party west of the
Mountain claimed the man and work
ed more earnestly for the nomination
of their choice. '
The ticket is a good one, and shall
have our most earnest support, and
we feel confident the Union party of
tho State will give it a solid vote, and
elect it by an overwhehning majority.
The Union County Convention and
We have taken an interest in party
conventions for thirty years, and nev
erbefore has any one transacted its
business SD fully satisfactorily to us
and the people as the Union Conven.
tion . which met in this place on Tues..
day last: The voice of the people was
heard, and the prOceedings of the con
vention must convince every ono that
their will was respected and obeyed.
"Honor to the brave—practice what
we have preached"--controlled the ae.
tiOn of the Convention, and the dele
gates, representatives of the loyal
Union voters of the county, put in
nomination a ticket worthy their uni•
ted and vigorous support. We have a
soldiers'' tiblret---every man upon it
(with one solitary exception) having
seen active service in the field—and
the exception has always been one of
the most active and stanchest Union
men in the county. We cannot, this
week, give a proper notice of each eau-
Edate, as we are not yet made fully
acquainted with their many heroic
deeds, and their sufferings, that their
country might be saved from destruc
tion. Several of the candidates carry
with them the evidence that they have
been true to their country, and a grate
ful people will not forget them, now
that they are again in our midst.—
They are all competent to fill the office
cos for which they have been nomina
ted, and a generous people will endorse
their nomination in October next by
living them a large majority over any
opposition. We shall hereafter speak
more fully of. the ticket. -
ittiaii-We know the men on the Union
ticket (with one exception) as true,
tried and honorable soldiers, well do
serving the rewards the people can
justify them in accepting. Two are
cripples, thus giving painful evidence
that they stood nobly while the battle
raged, and suffered to defend the flag;
the others,"more fortunate, were nev
ertheless, equally as ready, and some
have the sears to prove that their
blood vrti requiied to cement the
Union as we now find it. The voice
of the' people cannot but cry out in
their favor, and every feeling of sym
pathy and gratitude will insure them

DEAR, GLOBE:—Whilst I sit this
morning overlooking .the steamboats
passing up and down the. great river,
and the splendid.ferry boat Rock Isl
and on which' pivs3d the turbid waters
of the Mississippi more than nine years
ago, I feel sad from hearing of an ac
cident on the M. & M. B. R., about 80
mileS from hero, which happened last
night, in whiph three persons were
killed and many injured. I don't know
the details, but yon will have them be
fore this reaches you; or the mails will
be smarter than they have been. Wo
have had nd'initil . frOrn the east for two
days. That terrible rain we learn has
swept away, wo cannot tell how many
bridges between here and Chicago,
and perhaps farther east. But the
worst was that it about finished the
remainder of the
,wheat crop standing
out. Oh ! what a humbug is our Agri
cultural Bureau Reports. Not true
even if everything had been saved, for
the crops in Ohio; Indiana, and lowa,
(I mean the wheat crop), was not as
good as last year by odds; but now
since more than
-ball is lost by wet
weather it is a failtire, which .will tell
heavily on tho Markets.
Wheat and flour are rising in price
hero daily, and other cereals, sympa

But if i wo havef6 liilliog frost for the

as lowa will produce, never was seen
or heard of. The potatoes are already
made, and the yield \vill be tremendous
You should see some of these potatoes,
and the best to catj over tasted.
Well, about that rain storm. We
have had no two dry days in Bifaces,
sion since I arrived,hore but this came
on rather snakily, as if wo were going
to have but a small shower; no wind,
no sign of much electrical action, for
which this country is noted. But just
before it reached us, its power became
manifest: The thunder seemed tear
ing down the skies and racking the
earth. Clap after''elap, and peal after
peal—you had . bardly the time to
shield your eyes,from the flashes until
crash it came- tt , if , = ‘ at your door. A
stable was struck and burned in Rock
Island across the river, and a fine
horse in it, and yet4here was no wind.

.J. lt. Shipherd, Secretary of the
"Northwestern Freedmen's Aid Com
mission," communicates to the Chicago
Journal the following extract from a
recent business communication from
ono of our teachers at Mobile, Alaba
ma. Tor the last two months we have
boon in the frequent receipt of similar
statements equally credible. The au
thor of the extract herewith is a gen
tleman of moro than ordinary
gence, and especially prudent in re
gard to the repetition of rumors.
"With the present tendency of mat ,
tors in this State,
I do riot . think col
ored schools can be opened very gen
erally, except in such places as this,
nontgomery, etc. By GoVernor Par
sons' proclamations, civil Mff, as it.ax:
isted before the ordinance of secession
was passed, is now in force throughout
the State. .
"In accordance therewith, the May
or of this city decides that the testi
mony of a colored man against a
white man cannot be admitted in a
court of justice; neither ean a colored
man sue or collect .a debt of a white
man: The 'freedman' is one only in,
name, while his actual condition is
worse than when a slave. This is the
very result which rebels wish to bring
"A meeting was held hero last
night, before which statements were
made as to the treatment of colored . by
white people, in the interior of the
State, which would make you sick of
life. Ono hundred. and thirty-three
dead bodies were counted in the woods;
five bodies wore seen floating in the
river; two white men were seen to
pull a negro down across a log and cut
his head off with an axe. Women and
children were killed, and then boxed
up and thrown into the river; a wom
an was killed by a white man, and
burial refused by him to her relatives.
"For a black man to be seen with
'greenbacks' in his possession is death.
Colored people aro hiding in the woods,
living on berries, fruits, etc., to escape
the fury of their former masters.
"These statements were made by
intelligent, candid, colored mon before
an audience of several hundred last
night. 'Tt l iatobile, through the conni
vance of somebody,.ehurches and ne
gro houses are burnt, women set to
work cleaning the streets, men arid
women arrested in :beds taken to the
guardhouse, fined or sent to the work
bouSe, ete., etc.
"Last night there was a heavy fire,
in which three oi• four squares, mostly
of negro quarters, were burned. Men
were heard to say that before they
were done, they would • burn every
negro quarter and school house in Mo
bile. These things might be remedied."
SOLDIERS' DISCI - MMES.—WO referred,
some time since, to the practice of sol
diers selling their -discharges, said
discharge papers being used by span
tutors to purchase army horses at re
duced prices, it having been the prac•
tiro at the Government corrals to sell
a horse on a certificate of' honorable
discharge at greatly reduced prices.
We then also stated that his system of
selling horses on these discharges had
been suspended. It now ROME that
speculators are purchasing soldiers'
discharges with a view to making mon
ey in another direction. Congress, at
its coming session, will undoubtedly
.vote grants of land, bounties and oth
er rewards to soldiers who enlisted at
a time when such premiums were not
paid for recruits. Many of the biotin.
ties of the Governmet were enjoyed .
by men who served limited terms of
enlistment, or who, by the expiration
of the war, were &set-tat-god long be,
fore their time of enlistment had ex
Aired. Other men, as we have already
stated, enlisted and served full terms,
without a bounty. It is very probable,
as it would only be just, that COngress
will do all those who fought bravely
and were diScharged honorably, jus
tice hi these'' particulars. 'A portion
of the immense landed possessions of
the nation will be sot aside as homes
for these men, but all such as have Ws.%
posed 'of their 'honorable discharges, the
only evidence on which their claims can
be established, will be cut off from the
munificence. of the Government. The
speculators who aro engaged in put
chasing these discharges, are aware of
these facts. Every honorable discharge
will constitute the evidence to entitle
the holder to a good farm and perhaps
money enough to stock it, so that the
men who have earned these dischar
ges by fair and brave service on the
battle field,- - would do well to retain
them. As evidence of calor and pa
triotism, they are of great value, and
as the means some day of procuring a
home, they Should be, hoarded as so.
much money. We trust, then, that
every soldier who has an honorable
discharge, will resent as an insult the.
offer of any man to purchase it.
• TAE MEXICAN ASPECt—The Moral
effect of the overthrow of the rebellion
proves to bo greater in South America
and especially in Mexico, than invad•
lng armies and navies. Louis Napo
leon's contract did not include the de
feat of the slave conspiracy; it took
birth, shape, vitality, and vigor from
the hope of its success. His legions in
Mexico feel the failure of his theory
terribly. No Frenchmen emigrate
there; the soldiers long to get back to
Paris, and his German levies or con.
tingents are running over into the fat
lands of Texas as fast as their legs can
carry them. The French have all left
the Rio grand°, lost a collision should
take place between them and 'Sheri
dan's boys, some of whom are a little
too eager to "go on . " Had the French .
stayed on that lino, the Mexicans fired
by the news of the downfall of tho
rebels, would have risen behind thorn
and probably cut them to pieces.
The guns carried over by the retreat
ing rebels were never used by the
French, but were avoided as so much
poison—and when they were demand
ed as our property they were fbund
covered with rust, and gladly handed
back. The weak part of the whole
French fiasco is not in Mexico, but in
Paris, and the most anxious man to
get the Frenchmen out is not Juarez,
in his mountain home, but Louis Ka
poleon in , hie palate. - .

scarcely 100 wide, where they were
exposed to the rays of an almost trop

death of thousands. _This prison 'pen

The Facts About Jeff. Davis.•
The Floating Reports—He was Placed
in Ironspe Reasons—llls Present
• Condition—What Dr. Craven says, &c.
NEw Youtt,Angust correspon• ,
dent.of the Boston Traveler says: Dr.
Craven Medical Director at Fortress
Monroe, ander wh6Se especial care
Jefferson Davis is placed, paid a fly
ing visit to his home in Newark N. 3.;
last week, and in the course of con
versation gave some interesting tie-,
counts of the condition and deport
ment of his prisoner. He represents
that Davis is in excellent health, but
troubled in spirit. The guards are
regular in Attendance upon him,—too
constant in their :ate!) tions; in fact, to
please the fallen chief. Free conver
sations occur between.DaVis and Dr.
Craven, but no . one else is permitted'
to engage Davis to talk. -
For a few moments, the other day,
Davis and C. C.. Clay met on' the
grounds and had a very brief confer'•
enee in French, of which the gnarda
understood nothing. With this excep
Jeff, Davis,has hail no commani•
cation with any one but, his medical
adViser, and none whatever by.letter
with anybody. He'freqnently makes
an attempt to allude to his own case,
to discuss the chances of his triat or
punishniont, or to get some idea of the
piirposes of the Goverment toward
him ; but such efforts are always fruit
less, as Dr. Craven• immediately Chan
goo the subject.
The conflicting stories about Davis,
appealing from time to, time, in the
newspapers, amuse the people at For
tress Monroo. The irons were put
upon him, and ho didn't like the per
formance, but as ho became quiet
again, they were removed, and havg
not since been applied.
President Johnson's Polioy.
A Washington despatch to the asso,
elated press reads as follows.
Publications have recently boon
made of reports„speculations, and in
ferences about differences of=iminion
between the President and his Cabinet
with .reo ° urd to the , policy proper to be
pursued in restoring the Southern
States to their former relations to the
Union, and particularly in solving
'the question of negro suffra ,, e in the
work of re establishing civil gover n ment, the initiatory measures to secure
which hay.e airody been taken
through the agency of the Provisional
The proceedings of the Cabinet are
strictly private; and it is not known,
that any .of the members aro in the
habit of improperly revealing thorn;
and therefore, the publications proles'
sing to give reports of what takes
place in the Cabinet council, are to say
the lest,. unreliable.
, But it May be said With confidence,
as an answer to many of these specu
lations'that there - is not now, nor is it
believed there will be, any substantial
difference between. the President anti
his Cabinet with regard to the restore
Lion of the Southern States. . One of
the reasons for this assertion is the
fact that all the proclamations appoint
ing the . Provisional Governors arein
precisely the same words, founded on
the Tennemsee arfang,ement, mature
ly considered by the 'President and
approved by the Cabinet, showing a
carefully considered plan, the armies
ty proclamation being in accord with
that document. • -
Tho President, it is known from the
representations of his intimate friends,
is determined to pursue substantially
the reconstruction programme thus laid
down, having reasonable evidence froth
the South that it will be successful.
•Many of the accounts from that section
are exaggerated, and misrepresent the
true and favorable condition of public
nes-Major Dick .11160ann, formerly
of the rebel army, and . who:made hinv
