Tho Meeting at Carwensville. A meeting called by gome ninety ignpr8 representing themselves nf Democrat, v. as to be hold at Curwensvillo lust evrnin p, !br tho purposo of "spitting upon and re f.udiating" the St. Mary's platform. Among tho signers to thit call, vre rrc ognizo the names of several who have heretofore been recognized as entirely consistent in their adherence to the usa ges of the Democratic party, and, w ith out knowing the facts, we venture to say that their names were obtained through misrepresentation of some sort or other. The instigators of this movement may probably be incere in their motive. 1 1 tuny bo that it was not intended as a means of securing the defeat of certain Demo cratic candidates. If so, they can easily eatisfy the public of this fact by at once ac quiescing in the action the Assembled Democ racy of the county in this place last evening. The professed object of the meeting at Curwensville, is to repudiate certain of the resolutions adopted at the recent leg islate conference at St. Mary's. That they are susceptible to objection, wo have heretofore admitted. But we submit to those at the head of this movement whether it would not have been wiser to have waited until it wu ascertained whetLer those entiaients were assented to by the Dornocracy of this or any other of the counties composing the district ? or whether, it they would prjaerve the harmony of the Democratic party, they should not have applied to the Chairman of the County Committee and madea formal call of the Democratic, party of the county? Their fuilure to do either of uxw tniugs, ana m;. .n;-e - meet ing in the manner they did, is entirely irregular and disorganizing. As to the St. Mary's resolutions, we care but little about them. The delegates were sent there to nominate candidates not to make platforms. State and Nation til Conventions do this. And nobody is bound, in any degrco, to the expressed will of ten or a dozen gentlemen attending a district convention. If the people enter tain any doubts as to the sentiments or opinions of the candidates, it is to them that application should ba made ; or to i the countios presenting them. And how is itwitk Dr. Early and Maj. Nicholson ? Does any one doubt the loyalty or patri otism of either ? They cannot that of the latter, as he is now in the service him self and has also a eon a mere lad in Capt. Brady's company of Brookville, now quarterod in tho same encampment with tho brave volunteers from this coun ty. This should place him boyond the reach of suspicion. As ti Dr. Early, he ' waB present at the greut out-pouring of tho Democracy of Clearfield in this place lust night and unqualifiedly endorsed the proceedings therein exploited. We deeply regret this movement this lime-not that we apprehend any te rioiw consoquonccs in a political point of ffl)( view ; but bocause this is a time, above all 1 ists in any Slate to secede from the Union, Other., when Democrats should set i ' or to nullify the laws thereof. . , . , ., , . . , licsolved, 1 hat thik is no time fcr d:ssen harmony, ihey know that the lustory of j,ionB criminationSi or U8eleM discussions th country is the history of the Demo- M to the origin of the war, or where the emtio party.

They know that it is. their parly that hasslways resi-u. ed the country from all its previous perils. They also know that if the power bad re mained vith them, peace and prosperity would have remained to bleisour land. These and other reflections, to which they lead, should admonish every Democrat to lay aside'allpersonal andindividual prefer e nces and prejudices all minor, local and side issues and unite together as a band of brothers to place that good old Union making and Unionpresorviug party of Jederson and Jackson again in power. .5iy We would merely say. in reply to tho Titteburgh Dispatch, that inasmuch as j the Republicans in Congress last winter I rejected oahe plans ol compromise and ...... . . . . . .ipreacnea witn impunity, ir truth reconcillialion onored-at loast two oifree j0 COmbat it. which plans, according ta the evidence of Resolved, That so much of the Senator Tugh and the late benstor Doug" las, would have been satisfactory lo the Cotton States it is hardly fair, honest or logical to say that "to all overtures by peace conventions,' the Secessionists- were contomptuouslv deaf."

Bigler was loudly called for, who ap peared and addressed the meeting during the absence of the Committee. At the conclusion of his remarks, the iitiee tnrough their Chairman, Mr. Crans, reported the following Resolutions, which were unanimously adopted. Whereas. A wide s pread rebellion exists which has for its object the dismember, men l of our glorious Union; and the Dem ocratic party of Clearfield county, having assembled in Mass Convention to express their vie rs touching the present condi tion of the country Be it litsotved. That the history of the country is the history of the Imocratic party ; that as in the psst, the Democrat ic party has ever zealously and actively supported the powers that be in main i i.minir th nntionitl honor, and defend- in tlie .ymbol of our nationality, so in the present and in the future when stout hearts and willing hands are needed, the Democracy will cordially give to any ad ministration all the moral, nnterial and physical force necessary to crush rebellion, to relist invasion, or to wipe out any in dignity which may be offered to the Na tion. Jicsolvcd, That we will stand by the present Administration and aid it in all legitimate measuies whilst its objects may be the preservation of the Union, tho en forcement of the laws, and the maintain ance of the Constitutional rights of the people, but will not countenance any et for t. to destroy the institutions of any sec- jtion of our common country.

The following are all th j particular we csn learn of the bat tle at Cross hanes, near ummersviiie, on the 2Gtb, (Monday,) which appears to have been a bloody affair : The Seventh Ohio Kegimeut, Col. iyler, was surrounded while at breakfast, and attacked on both flanks and in front, sim ultaneously ; our men immediately form ed for battle, and fought most desperate ly and bravsly, while they saw but little chanco ol success I he enemy proving too powerful tor Colonil Iyler s lorce lie sent forward to his baggage train which was coming up three mile distant and turned it back towards Gauley bridge, which place it reached in satety. Companies B, C and I, suffered most severely. They particulai ty were in the lllMl.nll" Kh I1I1B11J I'JUgUl their way through fearful odds, making dreadful havoc in the enemy's ranks. The rebel force consistod of 3.UUU mtan- try and 400 cavalry and ten guns. The Federal torccs. aner cutting tneir woy through the enemy s ranks, were much scattored, but soon formed again and reneaed their lire, but received no reply or further pursuit fron the ene- mv. . Our loss is not yet definitely ascertain ed, but not over v:00 are missing ot the 900 men engaged. The rebels los was fearful. Lieutenant Colonel Crcighton captured the enemies colors and two prisoner. The following is a list of the officers known to be killed: Capt. Dyer, Co. D, ofPainosville: Caul. ShurthO, Co.

Unfortunately, Cape Girardeau ii not very strongly defended, nor is it at pres ent possible to send down more men We must simply ri.sk it, and if we lose the position, try to get our troops in time back to St. Iouis. The most expoi-ed point at present is Holla; and ail the movements of the en emy seem to bo directed towards thai place. The greatest portion of Gen.

This leaves little more than six thousand men at Holla for the present emergoncy. Gen. Siegel is still here, arranging plnr.s for future operations with Major General Fremont. His chief want is artillery and cavalry, which the Department is at pre ent unatle to supply. The only cmalry mc havo t present is Col. Marshall's Firs' Regiment Illinois Cavalry, now at Jeffer son City. Jefferson City itsell is garrisoned at present with liv thousand tion s under the chief command of Gen. Grar.t.
