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
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. Thoy know their party i responsibility rents ; that a rebellion ex
wuhout power in tho General Govern- J H,,fl R'' ,llt,u,cI lrive to bring about
nit nt, or in any of the States. 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.

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
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.

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

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

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
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,

snd First Iowa, all three months volun
teers, whose let m of fei vice had expired
long before tl.B battle of Springfield
have returned to St. Louis, to L'j muster
ed out of set vice, and reorganized for
three years. This leaves little more than
six thousand men at Holla for the present
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. Forti
fications will be erected, mid Homo!
Guards organized in a similar manner as
has been done in St I oui-, with a view to

The forces of McCullocli and Price arc
