cratic rule, tho brave children of the coun

and cared for, their pensions paid, their
families provided for, because there will

Army from tho peoplo, to separata thorn
and array them against enoh other, and
that hus been tho great danger cf the last
four years. This vote will reconnect the
Army with the people, and give the civil

of the country. Loud cheers.
To Whom it May Concer.v. Mr. Wick
lifle, of Kentucky, said that tho delogntes
from the N est were or iLu ojiiuiou that
circumstancoj may occur between noon
to-day and tho 4th of March next which
will mako it proper for the Domocrncy of
the country to meet in Convention again.
He therefore moved the following resolu
tion, which was unanimously adopted;
JtcsolviJ, That this Convention shall not
be dissolved by adjournment ut the closo
of its business, but shall remain organized,
subjoct to be called at any time and place
that the Executive National Committee
shall designato.
This reiolution of tho Chicago Conven
tion, to hold itself en permanence, gives some
uneasiness to Lincolnites. Some of them
regard it as "the most revolutionary step
yet taken." Others aro at a Ions to know
what it means, and anxiously enquire
what occasion there can bo for such a res
olution, the candidates of tho Democratic
party being nominated, and tho platform
adopted. 1'erhaps a careful perubiil of tho
following resolution, adopted by tho Con
vention, will assist our "loyal" friends in
solving the problem that seems to puzzle
them so distressingly :
llesolvcJ, That the direct interference of
the military power of tho United States in
the recent elections held in Kentucky,
Maryland, Missouri and Delaware, was a
shameful violation'of tho Constitution, and
a repetition of such acts in tho approach
ing election will be held as revolutianar, and
m isted teith all the means and power under our
MuClellan's PoiTLARiTr. A Presidcn

The capture of Atlanta is confirmed.
The Confederates have takan a new posi
tion twenty-six miles south of il. Sher
man lost twelve hundred men andcaptur-twenty-four
cannon and fifteen hundred
prisoners. Ihere was very little fighting.
It has teen about ton days since Goner-
'Sherman began a movement, much of
which is still involved in mystery. Ono
corps of his army, under General Siooum,
was left in the trenches in lront of Atlan
ta. The remainder was gradually with
drawn, formed into a long column on the
south bank of the Chattahoochee, and
slowly marched down the river. Parallel
to the rivor, and about eight miles south
it, is the Montgomery Railroad. East
Foint is about eight miles southwest of
Atlanta; Red Oak twenty miles, and fuir
burn twonly-five miles southwest. At
East Toint the Macon Railroad begins.
H runs south to Jonesboro'. and llinn
southeast. Jonesboro'. is twontv mi!o
from Atlanta. Hut verv little intnlliimncn
of Sherman's movement was transmitted
North, for during almost all the time since
it began Wheeler had tho railroad and
telegraph to Nashvillo cut, and there was
no communication.
Sherman marched his column down
the river until the rear reached Sandtown,
ten miles west of Atlanta. He thon swung
the hood of it around to the east until it
struck tho Montgomery Railroad at Fair
burn, From Fairburn a raiding party was
sent across tho country to Jonesboro', on
tho Macoo Railroad. The road was cut,
but no very large force of the enemy found
On August 28th General Hood telegraph
ed to Richmond that Sherman's lino ex
tended from Sandtown to Fairburn, thus
being southwest of the city, and Hood at
onco began moving his army to meet the
Federal advanoe. Sherman's southern
Hank marched unopposed up the Mont
gomery Railraod, from Fnirburn towards
Atlanta, until he reached Rel Oak, twon
ty miles from tho city. Here the Confed
erates met the troops and they halted
Sherman's southern Hank was then march
ed Southeast from Sundtown towards East
Point, eight miles from Atlanta. On Tucs-
I day last, August SOth, Sherman's line ex
tended Ironi Led Oak northeast along the
railroad towards East Point and his north
ern flank was pressing towards East Point
from the direction of Sandtown.
Hood, finding tho enemy southwest of
him, at onco abandoned Atlanta, uuuic
Sherman battle. A contest begin onTues
day afternoon along tho Montgomery Ruil
frora Rod Oak to East Point, a distance of
twelve miles. Slocura, who had been left
with ono corps in front of Atlanta, began
to feol tho enemy in front of him. He
found tho city abandoned, and on Friday
morning entered it. He at once announ
ced the ovacualion of Uie town, and by a
strange coincidence Wheeler was off the
railroad to Nashville just long enough to
allow of thejdeapatch being sent. Scarcely
had it gono when Wheeler again cut the
telegraph, and a veil once more hid Sher
man's operations' Slocum having the en
emy between him and Shermau's main
body, could not tell what waB transpiring
at East Point. He knew a battle was be
ing fought, for he heard the cannon, but
that was all. Up to Sunday morning this
was all the intelligence sent us.
1 his morning, however, we havelatoi
intelligence. Last evening the telegraph
was re-opened and a despatch from Sher
man himself received. The enemy on
Tuesday, had not fought him vory desper
ately, but gradually rctreatod across tho
country towards jonesooro.' Biiorman

enemy ontrenched. They sent out a re
connoisance, which was soon repulsed,
and Sherman made his uirangoments for
an attack. The Confederates by this timo
had retreated from Atlanta, and weio
drawn Up in line of the Macon railroad.
Thoir southern Hunk was at Jonesboro';
their northern flank at Rough and Ready,
a village thirteen miles from Atlanta. In
front of their position Flint River (low
ed, and tho hills on its eastern side were
intrenched. It was this position which
Sherman attacked on Thursday afternoon,
lie curried the Confederate works at J ones
boro', capturing ten cannon aud ono
thousand prisoners.
Hood blew up his works in evacuating
Atlanta, and destroyed some trains load
ed with ammunition. I he spoils secured
by Slocum woro fourteen cannon and tho
rums of the destroyed trains. When tho
works of Jonesboro' wore carriod, Hood
abandoned his line on Flint River, and by
a hasty march to tho southwest moved
the portion of his army which has been
sent north of Jonesboro' to the east ol the
place, he then rctreatod with all his for-
ces to Lovejoy's, six miles southwest oi

The Hope of Re-Union.
The Republican press tries very hard to
muddle tho theory of tho Republican
nnrty, and to conceal its utter incompati
bility with our constitutional system,
lake tho map, look out Massachusetts
and Georgia. There is no reason, geo
graphical or of any kind, which makes a
political conuectiou indispensable to ei
ther. Neithor tad any natural right to
say to tho other: Join mo in a common
fjovernment, and to feel hurt at a rofusal.
but thoy and others did join for tholr
common benefit. They did so through a
compact, and could do so in no other way.
By that compact they setlM upon tho
Buojecs ot government, sulyects of just
tho tame interest to ono as the other.
. It so happened that certain of those
States had a social and politicul systom
which they chose to perpotuate, and that
certain others, which originally had the
same system, choose to abandon it-
The States which had abandoned thot
system, not content with having their own
way about themselves, conceived that they
had some right to wish the olhers to fol
low their example, and upon tho wish fol
lowed the determination to make them do
so. First, thoy tried the London organ
grinder's system of annoyunce; at last,
the use of the common Government
against the object of their dislike. Tho
Democracy has never had but one doc
trine Whatever internal system Georgia
chooses, she ought to have, without inter
ference or hostility from her sister States.
Hei right of judgment is perfect, com
plete, and entire. Instead, however, of
uiscussing ner ngnt ot judgment, and de
cidiug upon that, tho Republican party
proceeded to discuss slavery. It is no
difficult thing to prove to a northern man
that slnvory is an evil; but what then?
If it were ten times the evil it is, what is
it his business outside of his State? The
simple difference, then, between the Dem
ocratic and Republican theories is, that
the first proposes 'to guide itself by the
torm8 of tho agrgemcnt between the
States, known as the Constitution, and
the other by a "moral sense."
Now, a "moral senso" is like an apo j if
I hold him he bites you, if you hold him
ho bites me. Tho moral sense of England,
as late as the middle of tho eighteenth
century, made her stipulate, in a treaty
with Spain, for tho right of furnishing
negro slaves. At present her moral sense
revolts at slavery, but sees no crimo in

In other word3, "moral sense." used as
Republicans uso it, means will, despotismi

southern Stales had been peopled by Mo-
hommedans, the "moral sense" of the
North would have been aroused against

Jews, tho "moral senso" of tho North
would have re-enactod the scenes which
Josephus paints; if they had been the
homes of Roman Catholics and tho North
had been exclusively Protestant, its "mo

We Democrats intend to tell tho people
of tho Southern States that we do not
propose to set up any higher law than the
Constitution, nor any higher principlo of

Republicans whoso eyes the last four years

propose a complete reconciliation, leaving
all questions of right and wrong iu tho

How Shall we Obtain Re-Union.
A Republcan journal, referring t the
possibilities of re-uniting the States now
in rebellion, romarks :
"There is a great deal of noncense talfc
ediboth North and South, about the ir.
concilablo hostility and ajtongonism that
exist between the two sections, and these
writers and talkers would birrabug us
with the idea that communities that have
once been at war can never after indulge
in peaceful friondbhip. There never was
a moro reiticulous absurdity Vhan this.
NutlOtlS Hiid ootntuunitioa aro like indi
viduals. They may swear eternal hatred,
but when the immediate occasion of wrath
and hatred has passed away, the feeling
gradually dies out and givos place to no
bler sentiments."
Now every member of tho National
Democratic party, and supporter of Gen
eral McClellan for tho Presidency, will
endorse the above viows. A restoration
of the Union and the Constitution as han
ded down to us by our father is what ovo
ry truo Democrat bolides not ouly possi
ble, but highly desirable. In enter to
bring about this much to bo desirod con
summation, we labor for a cliango in tho
Administration of tho Government and
the election of the Democrat iccandidatei.
Each and every conservative man, who
loves his country, and honors the sacred
compact cemented by the blood of patri
ots, has now an opportunity offered him
to show practically that amor pairia which
every true man owos, and should pay.
Many good men, contomplalir.g tho
dark picture of civil war, daily bloodshed,
and all the bitter feelings necessarily en
gendered by this fratricidal slrifo, have
considered themsclvesjustified in despair
ing of even a reconstruction bctweon tho
sections, much less a reconciliation of tho
Union. Tho task of reconciliation is cer
tainly a hard ono, but relying on our com
mon ancestry, common languao, and tho
former good fooling between citizena
North and South, wo havo a right to bo
liove that the momory of old troublos and
old difficulties may in time pass away, and
the good footings cherished in tho olden
time, whoa all Americans Blood shoulder
to shoulder in defonso of a commou Hag
and country, onco more predominante.
If thoro were no roaionablo hope of a
restoration, then might tho palriotio hoar.t
feel tho deepest pangs of despair,' and list
ening to the voico of the tempter, like tho
patriarch of old, feel like cursing his M$
ker anddvintf. Fortunately, we have lid
reason to ctiorisu buuu r.;n,,g. n Bpjts
of fuDaticism on tho one hand, anu iJl.i.
lion on the other, our land still lives, and
we have reason to believe will still contra
ue to survive, although knaves and prtrrl-
cidos are seeking to destroy the sacred fa
bile. With the election of our chosen stan-
dard-benror, the true lovers of the coun
try may feel assured there will be inaugu
rated a polioy, resulting in tho ro-estab-lishmont
of the Union and the Constitu
tion, us it was. More than this, wo can
not ask, and this we mist uxyk.N. Y.
