NATIO.NAL UNION TICKET.
FOR VICE PRESIDENT.
The Victors of General Aver'lt.
The telegraph has already informed our
readers that this dashing cavalry General has
punished the rebels rather severely in their
retreat from Chambersburg. The capture of
over five hundred prisoners, all the rebel
artillery, trains, and colors, and a large quan
tity of small arms, at Moorefields, West Vir
ginia, seems to be fully confirmed.
Whilst General Averill was in the vicinity
of Chambersburg, when the pirate M'eatts
land was burning that town, a large number:
of our people here complained of the tardi
ness of General Averill's movements, and
censured him for not attacking' the house
burners; but we learn from undoubted sources
that General Averill never received the dis
patches "which General Couch had forwarded
to him, and that he was not aware of the
situation of matters at that place. Had the
dispatches alleged to have been sent by Gen
eral Couch been received, General Averill
would have promptly moved on the rebels,
notwithstanding his force was broken down
and the horses worn out. As soon as the
General discovered the rebel doings at Chain
barb:mg, he went to work and pursued them
with all the forces at his command until they
were driven from M'Connelsburg, where he
halted, under the belief that General Kelley's
forces would meet them at Hancock and drive
them back. If that had been done the rebels
would have been between two fires, and Gen
eral Averill was ready to strike an effective
bfow, but General Kelley was not there, and
General Averill went single-handed in pursuit
of them until he overtook them at Moorefields,
Where lie punished them severely. We regard
General Averill as ,one of the best cavalry
officers. in the service, who has rendered the
country invaluable services. .
A few days since a rebel leader, McCaus
land, Was burning Chambersbiarg, an unde
fended village in this State which had never
.offered resistance, turning half-naked women
and babes out from their flaming houses, de
stroying churches and hospitals,and violating,
with his robber crew, all the laws of honora
ble warfare acknowledged among civilized
nations. Two weeks earlier, .a Union Gener
al—Rousseau—was in the heart of the rebel
couidiy, in Alabama; he found in a certain
village, named Loachapoka, a depotyf rebel
stores and a factory. These were verv'proper
to I:MULL, PUS. lue aujacent houses of the citi
zens were saved by the personal exertions of
the General and his soldiers—the latter pit
ting their own wet blankets on the roofs. In
Talladega, a confederate gun-factory was bro
ken up rather than burned, for fear that pri
vate houses might also suffer. Again, at
another station, the hospitals and tents for
the sick rebels were carefully spared.
We like such contrasts, and we are not sur
prised at them. Gen. Rousseau is the public
officer of a great nation, and he is a gentle
on; MeCatsland is a 'vulgar brigand itua
rebel, serving a horde of robbers.
How GRANT CUTS Run TAPE.—During his
visit to Monocacy on Saturday, Gen. Grant
illustrated his irreverenee for red tape in a
pleasing incident. Some months ago the
Ninetieth New York, then in a distant field of
operations, re-eillisitd as veteran recruits,
but were not able then to take their furlough,
on &comfit pf a press of business. The
regiment departed for, home on furlough.
Bat twenty-two of the men, for•some trivial
offence, were, as a punishment, not allowed
to g 9, and were put into other regiments to
eerie until their regiment returned, and were
still held as veteran recruits. These twenty
two men being at Monocacy, one of them
waited on Gen. Grant. A private soldier,
grim and travel-stained, bearing in his very
feature a trace of long and hard service in the
field, the Lieutenant-Generld listened atten
tively while he told his tale and plead felt him
■elt and his companions. A few questions put
and answered, and General Grant was sat
isfied that injustice had been done them, and
on the spot he wrote a telegram to the proper
officer, then at Harper's Ferry, instructing him
to furlough the men immediately, and the
consequence is they have left for home,
with a consciousness that tile Commander
in-chief of our armies metes out equal and ex
act justice to all.
Another New York Falsehood Contra
The New York press has been so filled with
falsehoods against the people of Pennsylva-
nia that we have become tired of contradict
ng them. We And, however, a word from Col.
M'Clure in the New York Times contradict
ing one of the falsehoods circulated against
him personally, which we insert in justice to
the:gtuitleman named. It reads:
A CARD ..VTION A-1K NCIAIRE.
To the Editor of the New York Times.
Your correspondent writing from the south
ern border of Pennsylvania, says in the limes
of the 4th inst: ' •
" "I wa, informed by s gentleman on the
train that Col. McClure paid $5,000 as a ran
som for his threatened property, and after all
tht scoundrels set the torch to his house, and
It now stands a smoking ruin." •
The foregoing statement has not the shad
oirof_ truth. I paid no sum of money to ran
;eom mrsomett nor did any one for me; and
altlitingh my loss is scarcely less than $50,000,
not one dollar of tribute would have been
paid to barbarous freebooters to save it. I
_was'ziotpresent, but no-member of my family
would have entertained a proposition of any
kind to ransom anything belonging to them
. A. L-McCLURE,
Onanmaialftnel Friday,. Aug; 4'1864-
This gentleman, as most of our readers are
aware, was the cattail* of the National
Union party of Blair county, for the Con
greasional nomination in the 17th District.
In the convention of dellites which named
him, he received a most decided and flatter
ing vote,•and the earnest and cordial support
subsequently given him by his conferees was
as complimentary as is was well-deserved.
Afta three days of unsuccessful balloting,
the conference adjourned nntil•a future time,
and when it again assembled, the relative posi
tions of the various aspirants remaining as
before, S. nomination seemed' impossible. It
was it this stage of the proceedings that Col.
gust laying aside all personal considerations,
and anxious only to subserve the interests of
the party, withdrew from the contest and re
quested his conferees to urge his nomination
no further. The manly and patriotic letter
which he wrote upon that occasion, and which
we publish below, does credit both to his
head and heart, and though his claims have
for a tine been postponed, we are well as
sured that the day is not far distant when a
grateful constituency will, in a fitting way,
show that they appreciate his merits and
ability. Such men as Col. HALL are needed
.in the councils of the State and Nation:
ALTOONA, August 3d, 1864.
Gasmrsces :—The Congressional Confer
ence, having balloted through three successive
days, without any result, before adjourn
ment, I deem it proper to relieve you of any
embarrassment so far as I am personally con
I need not say, to you, gentlemen, iny per
sonal friends, and who are familiar with the
history of the events which resulted in placing
me in my present attitude, that I am not now,
and have not been, anxious to be the Union
candidate for Congress in this District.
To the National - Union party of the county
of Blair which, in the convention of its del
egates, by a vote so decided and flattering,
designa c ted me as its candidate, and to you,
gentlemen, representing the sentiment of that
party and its convention, for the zeal and
earnestness with which you have aimed to
carry out that preference, I return my most
profound acknowledgment. I would, how
ever, be unworthy of the confidence thus re
posed in me by my friends at home, if with a
selfishness incapable of looking beyond per
sonal claims or aspirations, I should ask you
to do more than you have already done, to
effect my nomination. I have personally no
claim or merit, which does not dwindle to
nothing in view of the CAUSE which it is, or
should be, the aim of all of us to further, in
this trying hour of the Republic. A pertina
cious adherence to local claims, or personal
preferences, in times like these, would, as we
must all feel, be unpardonable. At anytime,
the expressed preference of a County Conven
tion; must commit something to the discre
tion of its delegated agents. That discretion,
I am free to say, should now be exercised by
.you, in your best judgment and most devoted
patriotism. It was in this spirit, and in good
faith, that I absolved you on the second day
of your balloting, from any obligations you
might feel to me personally ;=tag I now say
more explicitly, that I do not desire you to
insist further upon my nomination, in any
fotttra balloting ht the Conference..
I ant, gentlemen, faithfully your friend;

Some members opposed the introduction of
the bill, as not being in its nature a public
bill, and as likely to open the way to the con

the bill, it was urged that it came within the
scope of the business for which the Legisla
